Technicians are an important part of any education team and play a particularly vital role in promoting practical science to students. We have an extensive collection of practical resources, articles and support that can help technicians to deliver creative and inspiring practical demonstrations or lessons to pupils at all levels of education.
Teach Chemistry supports teachers and technicians to deliver high quality chemistry education and foster a supportive, effective department in their school. As a technician, Teach Chemistry can give you support for your practical skills, such as access to local events run by your regional education coordinator. Teach Chemistry also provides events, resources and discounts to support your whole department, including a school account page where you and your colleagues can share resources and good practice.
