Department of Chemistry of the University of Girona started to
build bridges between University and precollege centres in
20031.
Project react...explode!2 Recreational chemistry experiments
Project developed in 10 precollege centres during two
academic courses: 3rd-4th eso and 1st-2nd bat.
The aim of the project is to study the impact of the workshops
in science vocations

Editor's Notes

  1. Previous ideas about chemistry. Students consider chemistry more difficult since they advance in courses.
  2. Students consider chemistry less dangerous since they acquire knowledge about chemistry
  3. In all the levels they like a lot or quite to watch chemistry experiments. First year the most like lot.
  4. Students also like to do chemistry experiments. Younger students show enthusiastic. 1st bat maybe have gone to the lab and they found experiments little boring.
  5. Results of the second year (4th eso and 2nd bat) are better than first year
  6. Number of students, from the schools studied, who decided study science in high school (in red) and students who decided course chemistry as a subject (in blue) Results of 2012-2013 correspond to the group studied.
