Spectroscopy in a Suitcase

On 2 May, a team of students from the SSPC Centre, Chemistry Dept, University of Limerick visited the school and delivered workshops to our two groups of fifth year chemistry pupils. The workshop, Spectroscopy in a Suitcase, is sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry and it gives pupils the chance to learn about spectroscopy techniques through hands-on experience. The team brought with them infra red and ultra violet spectrophotometers which the students were able to use to carry out investigations.
