STUDENTS in Huddersfield will have the opportunity to learn chemistry from company experts.
More than 700 young people and teachers are expected at the town's university for presentations by chemicals company Clariant.
They take place next Tuesday and Wednesday as part of a national teaching initiative.
The event is sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry, which aims to bring chemistry to life with demonstrations from everyday life and the workplace.
Catherine Strachan, from Clariant, will head a presentation on oil flow production from the reservoir.
The talk is aimed at pupils studying GCSE, AS and A-levels.
Catherine said: "If talks like this can inspire students towards a career in the chemicals industry, fantastic - but the exercise is primarily focused towards developing their interest and understanding of the subject.
"Chemistry affects all our lives. However, it's only when you take it out of the classroom and into the world of work or the home that its importance is fully appreciated."
Teachers and students interested in attending should contact Dr Jo Lawton, at the Department of Chemical and Biological Sciences at the University of Huddersfield on 01484 473989 or email: j.lawton @hud.ac.uk
