Chemistry: the perfect gift for Christmas

Wednesday 24 January 2018

Fifteen pupils from Newport High School visited Upper Glyntaf Campus for Chemistry: the perfect gift for Christmas.  Working with Dr Suzy Keane – Academic Manager of Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Science, the pupils used Chemistry to create candles, bath bombs, Christmas Tree decorations and moisturising cream.  All of which were neatly packaged in Christmas bags ready to give as gifts for Christmas.

Newport High School is hoping that events like this will encourage their high achievers in Science to continue to study a Science subject post-16.  Dr Andrews from Newport High said “The kids and teacher had a blast. Please run this workshop again next year and please let us come again.”
