Aim of the group

The 'Links with schools'-group will survey what is currently done in each of the partner countries, analyze the impact of these activities, and hence create a collection of examples of good practice. The group will also collect materials used in links with schools and make these available (subject to any copyright restrictions) on the ECTN Image of Chemistry website. The survey will consider questions such as: Are the links initiated by schools or universities? Do university staff visit local schools, and if so at what level and for what activities? Is the chemical industry involved in visits to schools and do they provide materials? Can these materials be made readily available? Do universities target school teachers rather than students? At what level should the target be - primary or secondary? Can we evaluate the impact of these activities? Are there examples of anti-chemistry material that we can identify and counteract by providing competing material? A second-year activity of this group would be to provide assistance for the translation of materials (we would emphasize that the primary role of the ECTN is not to translate materials, but it does have a role in providing assistance in translating, for example in providing suitable contacts).
