              Great Deaf Chemical Kitchen Ambassadors




We wanted our students to experience the excitement and value of chemistry, and to understand that the chemical sciences are relevant to their everyday lives.  We received funds from the Royal Society of Chemistry to enable us to work with Dr Audrey Cameron, who is a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and can be found on their website (175 faces in chemistry: celebrating diversity).  The ‘Great Deaf Chemical Kitchen Ambassadors’ project took place over four school days and involved the Upper School students learning about the principles of kitchen chemical sciences.  There were lots of WOW experiments that had a strong link to chemical sciences and this project helped our students to build their presentation, engagement and team working skills.  Our students were empowered to believe that they could be 'Deaf Kitchen Chemical Ambassadors’ and presented different experiments through filming.  Also they had the opportunity to take on the role of being presenters which developed their presentation skills. 

Please watch a video (or a few!) and share with others; we would love to hear from you about what you thought of the video clips.  Very welcome to receive feedback, please send us your comments using this contact form.
