What is Chemistry?

Chemistry is the science that looks at energy and matter and the way that they interact with each other- mostly with exciting consequences! When you study chemistry you will be discovering a world of experiments that will lead you to having a better understanding of the world around you.

You will find the answers to questions such as:

  • What is the world made up of?
  • How do you discover new elements?
  • What happens if potassium and water are mixed together?
  • Was that really meant to happen?

Studying chemistry gives you a set of transferrable skills that reach way beyond the realms of just science, so why not study the subject and see what you come out with!
