Glasgow Science Centre has successfully hosted Chemistry Days for the past three years running. The six days run in the November: we are running Chemistry days in November 2010 and 2011. We work in partnership with universities across Scotland and offer practical workshops and shows to support the Higher Chemistry curriculum.

Last year we reached 1000 pupils offering workshops ranging from Biofuelling the future, to designing cars controlled by chemical reactions.
