S6 School Pupils Access Our Teaching Laboratories

Every year in the last two weeks of June the undergraduate teaching laboratory at the School of Chemistry open their doors and welcome in S6 school pupils to help them carry out their Advanced Higher Prescribed Practical Activity (PPAs).

This year we had over 130 students from schools in the Lothians and Fife. We were so busy that we ran an additional week in August just before our undergraduate students returned. Here are some photos from Beath High School showing their pupils in action in our undergraduate teaching laboratories.

Our Changing World

As part of this series of public lectures that examine the global challenges facing society and the role of academia in meeting these challenges, Dr Michael Shaver, Chancellor's Fellow in the School of Chemistry, presented "The Intertwined World of 'Peak' Oil, Renewables and Sustainability".
