The Chemistry Society organises numerous social events for the Chemistry department all year round. Some examples of our events are a Freshers’ pub crawl (great for new students!), pub quizzes, an annual ceilidh, mystery lectures and a weekly tea club in the chemistry department.
We are open to all, so whether you’re a chemistry student, taking a course in chemistry, or just have a keen interest in it, we offer a chance to meet up with like-minded people and get to know others in the department.
The society holds regular mystery lectures in which academic members of staff and research students showcase their research or the fun side of chemistry. We recently hosted a virtual lecture focusing on the ‘Chemistry of Christmas’ and have even had some interactive sessions involving liquid nitrogen ice cream!
Our pub quizzes are a brilliant opportunity to test your quiz skills and get to know other students and members of staff.
They are held twice a semester, with a variety of rounds including standard trivia (general knowledge, science, sport, etc.), fun rounds (Vines/TikToks/memes), and even live musical performances!
The ChemSoc Ceilidh is our main event of the year where the society, department and friends come together for a night of fun and traditional Scottish dancing.
It’s the largest society event in the School of Natural & Computing Sciences and is a great way to experience some traditional Scottish culture!
