About the event

Chemistry practical work is often seen as the most dangerous of the three sciences and often the most time consuming for technicians to prepare (and dispose of). On this interactive online course you will discover hints and tips to make chemistry practical work, ways to cut down on technician preparation time, disposal and storage of chemicals, chemistry demonstrations, the required practicals and some innovative chemistry practicals to add into the schools scheme of work.

It is strongly recommended to have good audio by way of a speaker and a microphone during the day, to enhance participation when engaging with other technicians.
