Events for teachers and students

Our events for teachers range from small, informal resources sessions, careers sessions and curriculum contextualisation workshops to larger events such as teacher conferences. We also run competitions for students to put their chemistry skills into action. If you have questions about any of our events, please email education@rsc.org.
