What you will learn

This course is a continuation from Key Concepts in Science: Chemistry, however the course is open to all and can be taken with no prior knowledge. Learn a range of topics in chemistry in a series of fun, hands-on sessions in our purpose built Science lab.

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • Describe the properties of the different groups of the periodic table.
  • Construct chemical formulae
  • Construct a balanced equation.
  • Perform basic chemistry calculations.
  • Compare empirical formulae and molecular formulae.
  • State the factors affecting rate of reaction and investigate these in the laboratory.
  • Define a catalyst, describe how a catalyst functions, and give real life examples of catalysts.
  • Develop skills in using apparatus, measuring techniques and using materials in the laboratory

Class format and activities

A series of interactive and engaging sessions delivered by a subject specialist in Chemistry. You will learn through practical activities, demonstrations, videos, and discussion.

In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
