Chemistry Outreach

Nick Barker

Building confidence through science

Explosions and slime. This is the type of chemistry kids love.

Nick Barker's Chemistry outreach programme is not just about getting more children interested in science, it's about having fun, building confidence and providing new opportunities. We visit schools and invite students into our labs too - for many of the children attending, they have never visited a campus or even thought about university.

  • £3.01 will buy a small pair of safety glasses
  • £7.96 will provide a small disposable lab coat (donated to the school afterwards)
  • £22.22 pays for a 500ml bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide
  • £60 pays for a PhD student helping for the day (although often many students do not claim their wages as they enjoy the sessions and want to donate their wages to the programme)
