Current Chemistry Investigators (CCI) is an informal education project by TCD and ATU Sligo aimed at sparking conversations with schools and community groups about the science of energy storage!
Our Informal Education workshops are run by trained researchers from the School of Chemistry at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and the Faculty of Science at the Atlantic Technological University (ATU), Sligo.
Thanks to funding provided by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), there is no cost to you or your students and we will arrange the workshop around your timetable. We are now booked up for the 2022/23 academic year. All new bookings will be added to a cancellation waiting list .
