CHEMISTRY AND THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY – INSPIRE THE NEXT GENERATION

IBioIC Members are invited to join this programme to engage with over 200 school children and their teachers to help inspire the next generation of IB professionals.

Date: 13 and 14 June
Time: 9.30 – 2.50
Venue: Royal College, University of Strathclyde

The circular economy is yet to be embedded in the curriculum for excellence, and this represents a significant barrier to inspiring the next generation of IB employees.  There is, however, an opportunity to reach over 200 S3/S4 pupils and their teachers at a forthcoming Chemistry @ Work event, focusing on the circular economy.  The IBioIC Skills team need your help to host an engaging, interactive, 30 minute workshop to:

• Demonstrate how you use chemistry in the circular economy.
• Showcase your organisation and the employment opportunities of the future in this area.

How it will work:
Each 30 minute workshop will be repeated 5 times between 10.15 – 2.30, with breaks for lunch and resetting between sessions.

Audience for 13th June will be 60 pupils with additional support needs and their teachers, rotating in groups of 12 pupils through the workshops.

Audience for 14th June will be 120 pupils and their teachers, rotating in groups of 24 pupils through the workshops.

If this commitment is too much, it will be possible to accommodate workshops for one of the two days.

Additional opportunities (free of charge):
• Exhibition space to reach audience during the breaks.
• Provide information or promotional items for goody bags. 

Demonstrating best practice
Engagement activities often generate lots of waste – please help us to be mindful of this and use materials that can be easily recycled!
