Chemistry at Work Event

On Wednesday 12th October Year 10 took part in a “Chemistry at Work” Event organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Specialist Chemists came from a range of backgrounds including industry, consultancy and universities to give presentations about their jobs and careers. Braeside students particularly enjoyed listening to Mona Sood talk about her career as a Pharmacist and Min Keating’s discussion on modern medicines and their plant origins. They also learned how chemistry contributes to your lifestyle in the things you use, wear, eat and drink; and how large and diverse is the number of careers available involving the Chemical sciences.
