Recent Publications Highlights

  1. Energy Education Science and Technology Part B: Social and Educational Studies, 2012, 4(4), 2327-2338 'Developing Experiment Based Science Teaching Skills: A Lifelong Learning Opportunity for Teachers in a Rural Area of Turkey' by M Eroll, U Boyuk, R Sahingoz, T G Harrison, and M F Costa.

    This paper describes the EU funded 'MOBILIM' project influenced by the Bristol ChemLabS and AIMS CETLs use of their Mobile Teaching Laboratory and outreach activities.

  2. South African Journal of Science, 107, November 2011 'Publicising chemistry in a multicultural society through chemistry outreach', by Tim Harrison, Dudley Shallcross, Nick Norman, Joyce Sewry and Mike Davies-Coleman.

    This paper describes the partnership between the chemistry departments at Rhodes University and the University of Bristol and provides an outline of the chemistry content of their outreach initiatives, the modes of delivery, the advantages to both departments and their students for involvement in various levels of outreach, the challenges they still face, and additional opportunities that such work facilitated.

  3. New Directions in the Teaching of Physical Sciences, Higher Education academy UK Physical Sciences Centre, Issue 7, July 2011, 13-18. ‘The many positive impacts of participating in outreach activities on postgraduate students’ by T G Harrison, K L Hanford, B T Cheesman, G Kaur, S D Franklin, A M C Laurain, M I Medley, A C Rivett, K L Shallcross, K E Shaw, S J Williams, D E Shallcross and L Sellou.

    Postgraduate students are excellent role models for school students, where their passion and energy play a vital role in engaging younger students and spreading enthusiasm and excitement about science. However, participating in outreach is not a one way activity for these postgraduate students.

  4. New Directions in the Teaching of Physical Sciences, Higher Education academy UK Physical Sciences Centre, Issue 7, July 2011, 22-26. ‘On the impact of the Bristol ChemLabS’ outreach programme on admissions to the School of Chemistry’ by A J Shaw, T G Harrison, K L Shallcross, S J Williams and D E Shallcross.

    Analysis of the average number of applicants received from schools that engaged in the Bristol ChemLabS Outreach programme prior to a student's application with those that did not engage, shows a significant increase in applicants from engaged schools. When this analysis was inspected in terms of the distance of the school from the University of Bristol, there was an increase in the number of applicants from engaged schools irrespective of distance. However, a statistically significant increase was observed for schools within 50 miles of the University from an analysis of Post 16 students.

  5. Residential Chemistry Camps for School Students: Why Bother? New Directions in the Teaching of Physical Sciences, Higher Education Academy, 10(1), February 2014T.G. HarrisonS.J. CrokerD.E. Shallcross.

    A discussion of the advantages perceived by Bristol ChemLabS in running annual  residential chemistry camps.

  6. Why do Secondary School Chemistry Teachers Engage in Long-Term Outreach Partnership with a University?, Acta Didactica Napocensia, (9)2, 79-97. S.R. Glover, T.G. Harrison, D.E. Shallcross (2016).

    In this paper, one from Sarah’s PhD thesis in Chemistry Outreach, Sarah investigates why CHeMneT members engage with outreach at Bristol year-on-year.​
