The Future of Plastics
This enrichment session focuses on why plastics have become so important in our everyday lives, the chemistry that underpins them and why their persistence in the environment is so problematic.
During the session, DPhil Kam Poon (Williams Group) will cover the latest developments in the field of polymer chemistry, relating the core themes to content covered in GCSE and A-Level chemistry.
Preceding the talk, there will be a short discussion of the importance of super-curricular engagement and financing university from the Trinity College access team.
Throughout, there will be opportunities for questions, both on the talk as well as applying to university in general.
