    We run a whole range of ChemNet events, from lectures to lab tours to revision sessions throughout the UK and Ireland. They are a great way for you to find out more about what it’s like to study chemistry at university, other routes into chemistry, and what chemists actually do!
     
    Previous events include a tour and hands on activities at LGC Forensics labs, flavour chemistry experiments at Omega labs, an insight into the internal working of a nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point and exploring the links between chemistry and art at the Mary Rose museum.
     
    Events are free for ChemNet members to attend but you must register in advance.
    Members under 16 must be accompanied by a teacher, parent or guardian.

For example, if you draw a diagram showing how the atoms are joined together in a water molecule, there is only one way of doing it: each of the two hydrogen atoms is joined to the oxygen atom b...
