National Lecture Series

Throughout Australia, we provide access to inspiring chemical scientists via our Secondary School chemistry lecture series. Each year, these lectures cover a diverse range of engaging topics with the aim of inspiring students in a career in Chemistry.

In 2021, we're hoping to be able to deliver the lectures in person like normal. More information will be released in February 2021. Please email us if you would like to host a lecture at your school. 

Unfortunately in 2020, COVID-19 greatly impacted our lectures. We were very fortunate that the WA Bayliss Lecture was able to go ahead earlier in the year. VIC and NSW have been able to record and offer the Hartung Lecture and the Nyholm Lectures online.
