Chemistry at Work in DIT on March 4th

160 secondary school students and representatives from many of the major employers of science graduates will be taking part in the second Chemistry at Work Day at Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Kevin St. on Tuesday 4th March 2008. The event shows how the chemistry and science studied at school is put into use around us every day and demonstrates the wide range of job opportunities available to chemistry graduates.

  • Chemical methods to restore serial numbers on firearms and stolen goods (Garda Technical Bureau) and to monitor pollution (Environmental Protection Agency)
