We were delighted to host Dr Jonathan Charmant from the Department of Chemistry at Bristol University at the Cornwall School of Mathematics and Science.

Dr Charmant outlined some of the amazing research into different areas of Chemistry which is going on at his university and gave the members of the CSMS Scholars’ Community in attendance an insight into what studying a degree like Chemistry will involve.

By the end of the lecture the students had a much clearer idea about how ‘real’ chemistry is different to the chemistry done in school, as well as some of the amazing opportunities open to them if they decide to pursue a career in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering.

We would like to thank Dr Charmant for coming all the way down to Cornwall to deliver this lecture.
