Bristol ChemLabS is the project name of the UK's Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning in practical chemistry. As part fo this pprject, now in its sixth year, we engage annually and directly with around 30,000 people in chemistry outreach worldwide through a wide range of practical work, competitions, CPD for teachers, conferences and lecture demonstrations. This work is targeted at primary age pupils, secondary students, teachers and memebers of he public. A large amount of thsi work involves postgraduate chemists working directly with school students as effective role models.

We will be contributing to IYC2011 through a coninuance of our work in these areas and publicising more widely this work and the roile of chemists.
