On Thursday they were treated to a talk by scientist, author, photographer, historian and broadcaster Adam Hart-Davis on 'What has Chemistry Done for Us?'. This was followed by a drinks reception.

Friday began with a poster session and LabSkills Evaluation. Each of the attendees had prepared a poster about their experience using the software as part of their training and teaching.

The first lecture of the day was given by Bob Worley, Lead Chemistry Advisor at CLEAPSS (Consortium of Local Education Authorities for the Provision of Science Services), who showed the students a few dos and don'ts of practical chemistry in the classroom.

Over lunch the students got a chance to look around an exhibition by relevant bodies such as Science Learning Centres, the TDA (Training and Development Agency for Schools), STEMpoint and Teachable. Caroline Tolond from the RSC gave a talk entitled 'Careers Advice for Students Choosing Chemistry' and several future, present and former RSC School Teachers Fellows demonstrated some fun practicals that can be used to augment lessons aided by the Bristol ChemLabS School Teacher Fellow Tim Harrison.

Eleven of the attendees won the networkable version of the Chemistry LabSkills software for their new schools as prizes for the standards of their presentations.

This event was organised by the RSC and sponsored by Pfizer.

02 April: Dissemination Conference

Bristol ChemLabS held a one-day Dissemination Conference in the School of Chemistry for delegates from chemistry and other academic disciplines attending from other UK HEIs as well as from within the University of Bristol. The conference showcased the CETL's developments of the last four years, notably the Teaching Labs, the Dynamic Laboratory Manual and Outreach.

There was a great deal of enthusiasm from delegates about what had been achieved. The level of interest and engagement could be judged by the high volume of questions. Many of the 42 delegates had heard something about ChemLabS from colleagues and had attended to find out more. Asked if he had got what he had expected or hoped for from the day, one delegate said “Oh yes, and much more!"
