Warwick Chemistry Society (ChemSoc)

Warwick ChemSoc is an academic society that unites students through a love of chemistry! Whether it be social events, sporting events or academic support through our weekly ChemCafés, we have something for everyone. Our annual ChemBall is the highlight of our social calendar, being an amazing night for academics and students alike to let their hair down and forget about the pressures of university life.

Furthermore, our incredible outreach team brings the magic of science to the local community, helping to teach and inspire the future generations of scientists. So, if you're a chemist, a biochemist or someone who just loves chemistry, come and give us a try!

Our Green Future

Are you worried about what our future will look like? Is plastic good or bad? Are electric vehicles actually going to save our planet? 

Seeking to answer these questions, we drew together a large number of industry leaders and academics and presented them at our forum ‘Our Green Future’. The event had a focus on the themes of 'Clean Transport', 'Plastics with Potential' and 'Food of the Future': very topical issues of climate change.  All of the money raised from tickets was also donated to charities fighting climate change!

Talks with Angela Saini

In support of the Black Lives Matter movement, and in response to the continued systemic racism that pervades our culture, Warwick ChemSoc hosted an online Q&A with award-winning author and journalist Angela Saini. Her books 'Superior' and 'Inferior' tackle the subjects of gender and race and how prejudice has influenced science.

Diversity book club

In collaboration with PSoC as well as the STEM and Diversity Team at Warwick, we set up the Warwick Chemistry Diversity Book Club; a venture sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

This book club is designed to raise awareness, providing an opportunity for members of our chemistry department to connect, communicate and reflect on current diversity issues prevalent within the chemical sciences today.

ChemCafé

ChemCafé, our flagship student-run event, provides a wide range of sessions offering student support for all years. We offer an informal environment to meet new people, seek help with chemistry-related issues, participate in skills workshops, work with course-mates as well as hear both internal and external speakers. Each week, pizza and refreshments are provided free of charge.
