Why Study Chemistry?
Chemists get to ask some great questions, from “If I set this on fire what will happen?” to “If I combine these elements together in the right way can I create something totally new”? And it’s all part of the job.
Yep, as long as their question has a purpose! (And they follow the health and safety rules...)
Chemists conduct experiments to study how elements work in different conditions, test how they mix, and work out what they are made up of right down to the tiniest particle.
The results can be ground-breaking, colourful, explosive, or almost impossible to see.
