Chemistry workshops for high school students

17 June – 28 June 2019

Massey University’s chemistry department in Auckland are running free workshops for schools, providing level 2 and level 3 students with a hands-on experience in an undergraduate laboratory. The workshops include ‘Chemical Cluedo’ and ‘Synthesis, purification and analysis of a medicinal compound’. These workshops can be booked by teachers for groups of students. The content directly relates to NCEA achievement standards (AS 91391, 91388 and 91164).
