Doors Open Day

Saturday, September 27, 2014 - 11:00
School of Chemistry, Foyer and Museum

Chemistry has been taught in the Joseph Black Building since 1922, making it the oldest building on the campus. Visitors will be able to take guided tours of the building which highlight the changes that have been made (and are being made!) to make the teaching and research that is carried out here more sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Visitors will also have the chance to get a glimpse into the latest sustainable chemistry research, which aims to design products and processes that minimize the use and generation of hazardous substances, as well as work into renewable energy sources. Hand-on activities and demonstrations will take place in the Foyer and Museum.

Do you know any interesting historical facts or stories about the building? If you do, please let us know!
