Careers and education


SONG supports IChemE’s whynotchemeng campaign promoting chemical engineering as a career choice to young people. In particular, SONG provided funding for the Top Ten Flash Bang Demos - a resource produced to encourage the inclusion of fun, safe and relevant demonstrations in the teaching of science.

Members of SONG also participate in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Chemistry at Work events programme giving school students an insight into chemical engineering.

Attendance at SONG evening events is free for SONG members, providing a great networking opportunity for students planning a career in the oil and gas industries. SONG can also contribute to students’ travel costs to attend events. Contact Brian Songhurst.
