Science of materials summer school

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) will be running an INSET materials summer school in London from 9-12 July. The residential course aims to support the teaching of materials science by offering teachers the opportunity to update their knowledge of the chemistry of materials and see first-hand applications of materials science in action. 

Supported by the Institute of Materials and the Armourers & Brasiers' Company, the four-day programme will include lectures, demonstrations and practicals on the latest developments in materials science at Queen Mary, University of London, Imperial College London, and the London Metropolitan University Polymer Centre. In behind-the-scenes visits to the Victoria and Albert Museum and the National Gallery teachers will learn about chemistry's role in art conservation.  

Teachers must register for the event and there is a fee. For further information contact Lorraine Hart at the Royal Society of Chemistry.
