Dermot and Amy work with TCD Chemistry for schools outreach

Dermot (4th Year PhD) working with students at Dominican College, Drumcondra.

As part of the RSC Spectroscopy in a Suitcase programme, administered by TCD Chemistry and RSC Education Coordinator Dr. John O’Donoghue, Dermot and Amy took part in outreach sessions in Dublin, Co. Wicklow and Co. Kilkenny over recent weeks.

“Spectroscopy in a Suitcase 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 TG group is always happy to share our interests in Chemistry with schools and the public, some examples and resources can be found in our Outreach section.
