University of Essex and Colchester Zoo Trip

University of Essex and Colchester Zoo Trip

The Department of Chemistry, headed by Mr Roopak, organised an educational yet fun trip to University of Essex and Colchester Zoo on 14th April 2016. The trip was aimed at promoting interest in pupils for Chemistry through the exciting practical aspects of the subject demonstrated in the ‘Fun with Chemistry’ event conducted by the Royal Society of Chemistry held at the Lecture Hall of University of Essex. A series of experiments were performed by veteran scholars of RSC involving the display of colourful solutions and flames, magical Chemistry tricks and explosive fireworks using many unconventional chemicals. On the way to the Colchester campus of the university, the pupils explored a variety of animals including some endangered species at Colchester Zoo – one of the two top zoos of the UK.
