Solar Cell FlowerGreen Science Symposium for Schools

Monday 2 July

Time: 1.00pm – 5.30pm
Location: Building 3 West North, Room 2.1

Green science aims to replace the traditional oil-based manufacturing routes, with non-toxic, non-polluting alternatives. Researchers seeking to achieve this goal work in many areas including energy, plastics and medicine.  In this symposium, leading researchers from the University of Bath discuss their perspectives on green science. Nanotechnology, computer modelling, catalysis and tissue engineering are among the surprising and diverse areas which contribute to current cutting edge research into green science.  With a range of speakers from both the Departments of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering this event, aimed at Year 12 and 13 students, will illustrate the breadth of topics that "Green Science" encompasses.
