Chemistry Lecture

On Thursday 26th February Dr Ruaraidh McIntosh, of Heriot Watt’s Chemistry Department, gave our S3 Chemists a short presentation on the nature of chemical bonding and how understanding such a complex theory can lead to great developments in both the scientific and technological worlds.

Pupils were treated to a university style lecture and gained an informative view on the practical applications of this field of science. From novel materials inspired by gecko’s feet, to more familiar materials such as iPhone displays, pupils gained an insight into explaining how these materials work and were inspired and encouraged to pursue a career in the chemical sciences and to be part of the developments that will improve society for years to come.
