The summer school is intended for pupils who will be moving on to their pre-university year and have an interest in chemistry or chemical engineering. This year the summer school will be held from Monday August 28th through Thursday August 31st, 2017. International students will be welcomed on Sunday August 27th and will be given the opportunity to ask further questions on Friday September 1st.
What is the summer school?
You will spend four days working in a group of, on average, eight pupils on an interesting project. Various project will be offered by the different research groups at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. This will give you the chance to use sophisticated equipment in a professional laboratory, under the expert guidance of a student in a higher year. During this week you can also find out what it is like to study at a university.
Rounding off the week
The summer school will be rounded off with a poster presentation about the results achieved in the project. The audience will be the other groups and staff of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. This will enable you to experience aspects of chemistry and chemical engineering other than those involved in your project work.
Everyone can stay overnight. There are no costs involved in taking part in the summer school.
