The Department of Chemical Engineering is home to the ReallySmallScience outreach group, who engage with different audiences about the cutting edge chemical engineering research being undertaken within the University of Strathclyde. 

The group aims to make scientific research more accessible and fun for all ages, from preschool children to adults, through interactive hands-on activities. 

How to get involved

Whether you're a teacher looking to bring the latest science and engineering skills into the classroom, or a researcher seeking to engage the public, we have tailor-made workshops designed to help you. 


We bring science and engineering to the classroom with fun activities for preschool children, primary and secondary schools. Our activities can be delivered virtually to classes or with small groups. For more information and availability complete our contact form and a member of the team will respond to you. 


In response to the global pandemic we have created online activities for budding engineers and scientists to try at home. We can also offer virtual workshops with our team. Get in touch for more information.

Virtual activities

We now offer a number of our workshops virtually for both primary and secondary level science and engineering. If you're a teacher looking to compliment the classroom learning or a parent looking for something educational for your children to do at home, contact us for more info. 

Students and Researchers

The group is made up of undergraduate and postgraduate chemical engineering students, as well as staff from the Department of Chemical & Process Engineering. All goup members benefit from engagement training and communication skills vital to career development. If you would like to volunteer with the group and find out details of the upcoming ReallySmallScience events, contact the group coordinator
