Spectroscopy in a Suitcase has now arrived in Scotland!
Issued: Wed, 14 Jan 2015 11:47:00 GMT
The RSC's Spectroscopy in a Suitcase scheme is an outreach activity which gives school students the chance to learn about spectroscopy through hands-on experience. As well as covering the principles of spectroscopic techniques, the activities use real-life contexts to demonstrate the applications of the techniques. The kits are hosted by Universities and events are delivered by University students, so have a strong emphasis on encouraging school pupils to consider studying chemistry and the career opportunities available. The equipment may also be available on a short-term loan basis.
The use of the instruments might be of interest to STEM ambassadors who work with spectroscopy.
