Chemistry Inreach: University Employees' Children Experiencing University Chemistry
Shaw, Amanda J.; Harrison, Timothy G.; Shallcross, Dudley E.; Medley, Marcus I.
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v2 n4 p107-112 2009
Many university departments provide public engagement activities, often referred to as "outreach" to school students, their teachers and other members of the public. It is less common for University Departments to run activities for their employees let alone the children of these employees. This paper looks at the value put on an engagement activity both by participating students and their parents who are employees of the host university. Analysis shows that the students welcome the opportunity to experience aspects of their parents' workplace and those parents are extremely supportive of such initiatives.
