Godalming College

Research and innovative teaching for ‘A’ Level science


Students have been able to experience the excitement of research in uncharted territory as they have pioneered experiments in the new fullurene or ‘buckyball’ chemistry. Links with neighbouring university departments and with industry foster research at the highest level, offering students authentic learning experiences in industrial contexts. Successive groups of chemistry students examine both the latest findings of research scientists and previous college teams’ results in order to determine their own project, moving the boundaries of knowledge forward and inspiring the Departments of Physics, and of Design and Technology in their own original research.
