Chemistry - Step up Programme

Bridge the gap between GCSE and A-Level/IB with our Chemistry Step Up Programme. Oliver (M.Sc. Cantab) will take the skills gained in GCSE Chemistry and develop these to higher levels. Oliver will give you the solid understanding of Chemistry needed in order to succeed in A-Level/IB Chemistry.

About the Event

Session 1- Atomic Structure + Periodicity:

Atoms make up everything and so it is very important that we understand what they are made of and how they behave. GCSE teaches the basics of the Böhr nuclear model of the atom, but experiments have shown this model to be outdated and simplified. A level chemistry introduces atomic orbital theory, an advancement on the nuclear model, which helps to explain certain properties of atoms which the Böhr model can’t.

Session 2- Bonding INTER INTRA:

Knowledge of how atoms bond to form molecules and compounds is critical to understanding the material properties. This class will touch upon the bonding model taught at GCSE, and touch upon more sophisticated tweaks to make them more realistic. It will also introduce the topics of intramolecular bonding - bonding between molecules - which will allow us to answer questions like why is chlorine a gas, bromine a liquid, but iodine a solid? Why is water ‘sticky’? What makes Kevlar so strong?

Session 3- Organic chemistry:

Life is based on carbon. Proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and other biological molecules are all carbon based. Understanding how carbon based compounds react can allow us to exploit them to make new compounds. This is vital in helping to design new pharmaceuticals, fabrics, cosmetics, and so many others. Here we introduce some of the reactivities that we can manipulate, and why they work.

Session 4- Kinetics & energetics:

All reactions occur at a certain speed, although the speed can vary based on factors such as temperature and pressure. Here, we take a more theoretical approach to some of the factors that affect how quickly a reaction occurs, and also start to answer why some reactions occur very readily, and some do not occur at all.
