Developing a Junior Scientist Badge with a Local Youth Service - Community Based Learning with Chemistry Undergraduates

Short description

This outreach activity was designed to involve sustained interaction over a 3-week period with TU Dublin chemistry students for young people living in an underserved community, who have an interest in science and would like to work towards achieving the Junior Scientist badge. In order to gain their badge, the young people complete the Royal Society of Chemistry Global Experiment or a similar activity as well as a Science Circuit with “stations” devised by students on a range of chemistry topics.
