Uncovering Chemical Secrets – these are screen dumps from the flash e-learning resource more details can be found at Uncovering Chemical Secrets is a practical workshop, run annually by Techniquest and Cardiff University. It helps 2nd year A level students appreciate the methods chemists use to isolate and identify chemical compounds. It is relevant to the schools curriculum and involves the isolation of natural substances, associated with taste and smell in certain plants. Students use modern laboratory equipment to isolate their own samples and then visit the School of Chemistry to see how modern state-of-the-art techniques and instrumentation are used to determine purity and give clues to chemical structure. With funding from HEFCW, we have been able to produce a comprehensive e-learning resource to support the project. This resource is being offered to every secondary school in Wales. This is particularly important because not all schools in Wales can easily visit a tertiary institution to get this level of support for a level chemistry. The resource can usefully support pupil study if they are unable to visit a university. What follows is a series of screen dumps from a small part of the resource which hopefully gives an accurate idea of the nature and scope of the resource. Uncovering Chemical Secrets NB The videos and animations from the resource do not function in this PowerPoint preview.

The Uncovering Chemical Secrets project and e-learning resource was devised and produced by Peter Hollamby and Peter Edwards of the School of Chemistry, Cardiff University. For information on ordering a copy of the resource see the separate word document E-Learning Support on the news page of the schools website.E-Learning Support
