RSC Breaks Guinness World Record

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) has broken the Guinness World Record for the 'Largest Practical Science Lesson'.

The class took place in Belfast's Odyssey Arena over the course of an eleven-day festival in February, celebrating the region's scientific heritage.

Pupils were invited to use science to solve a 'crime'. Together with their Irish colleagues and the British Council, the RSC beat the previous record for largest practical science lesson by over 350 primary and secondary school pupils.

This achievement demonstrates the RSC's creative approach to promoting the scientific professions.

Stephanie Nelson, the RSC's Education Coordinator for the Ireland Region, emphasised the importance of this record in inspiring children through science. She said: "To have many hundreds of children enthused and excited by the world of chemistry is an immense joy!"
