Staff in the School of Chemistry at Midlands Innovation Commercialisation of Research Accelerator (MICRA) partner the University of Birmingham have created a suite of resources to support parents home schooling their children in science during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Led by the School of Chemistry’s Ruth Patchett, Nicola Rogers and Zoe Schnepp, ChemBAM seeks to “bring… chemistry to life”. Additional content, expertise and resources are provided by other staff and research students from the School. The project’s website offers a wide variety of resources ranging from DIY experiment guides, to videos, and useful external resources. Nor is it just for the youngest learners, the team behind the website advise that the resources are suitable for students all the way up to those preparing to go to university to study undergraduate science.
