The Department of Chemistry is involved in activities for the public, the professional public, and students and teachers of primary and secondary schools. These include lectures, excursions and practical exercises, open days, and Researchers' night. Come and see our laboratories and lecture rooms, experience experiments for yourself or learn more about interesting scientific topics.
The Reserachers' night is a public event that takes place all over the Czech Republic and involves universities, scientific institutes, observatories, and other institutions. In one evening, their buildings and places where you can't normally go are opened, and an exciting program is prepared - from laboratory tours and lectures to competitions, quizzes, and experimental demonstrations. The Department of Chemistry regularly organizes a program for visitors - find our stations and come and visit us!
Every year we participate in the Open Days organized at the Faculty of Science of Masaryk University. Participants can listen to a lecture about the study of chemistry programs, are provided with information materials, and can also see the laboratories of the Department of Chemistry.
Open Days are usually held in January, and the date and program of the event are published on the website of the Faculty of Science well in advance.
Lectures of the Czech Chemical Society
The Department of Chemistry at Masaryk University hosts lectures by guests of the Brno branch of the Czech Chemical Society on the first Thursday of every month. The lecturers include not only Czech experts but also foreign researchers and other scientists. The lectures take place at the Bohunice University Campus, building B11, room 132.
The Chemistry Café is an informal meeting over a cup of good coffee on topics in chemistry or chemistry didactics. It is mainly intended for chemistry teachers in secondary and primary schools, but everyone who is interested in chemistry and chemistry education is welcome, e.g. chemistry teaching students. High school students interested in chemistry are also welcome.
The Junior University (MJUNI) is an opportunity for students aged 9 to 18 to experience the academic environment and become university student for a while through an interactive, playful format. At the Department of Chemistry, we are regularly involved in the chemistry section and prepare a fun program for children to explore the mysteries of chemistry.
