Xperimania: from molecules to materials

Concentrating on chemistry and physics, Xperimania aimed to boost young people's interest in science. The project helped students in secondary school and their teachers to understand the wide range of chemistry applications in our day-to-day life.

Since its start in 2007, the project developed a set of hands-on experiments related to materials and their properties, organised several school competitions, a chemistry workshop tour across Europe, and three series of online chats with industry experts.

Xperimania was coordinated by European Schoolnet on behalf of European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic). Other partners include European Petrochemical Association (EPCA,) the Association of Petrochemicals Producers in Europe (Appe), and the International Year of Chemistry 2011.
