Club Alchemy

  • taken by Elizabeth Quek for Deck the Walls 2017, a project by the Raffles Photographic Society

    Club Alchemy transforms its members into passionate students of Chemistry through theory and practical sessions, conducted in an environment conducive for self discovery, experimentalism and peer learning. While we’ve moved past trying to make gold from lead, practical sessions invesigate everyday phenomena like making ice-cream in 3 different ways (you even get the eat the ice cream afterwards), synthesis of aspirin (you probably shouldn’t eat this afterwards), as well as candle making (you definitely shouldn’t be eating this). 

    As an exploratory club, members get to stretch the limits of what they can do with household items and synthesise different compounds, all while learning more about Chemistry in a relaxed environment with like-minded Alchemists. As long as you are interested in learning more about Chemistry and carrying out some lab work with like-minded alchemists, do consider joining Club Alchemy!
