Learn Chemistry Resources
    ► Learn Chemistry and ABPI resource partnership
  Learn Chemistry now includes chemistry resources from the Association of
British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI).

These ABPI resources, such as the *Periodic Table Game*, bring further
depth to existing Learn Chemistry content areas.
  All the ABPI resources are marked with our ‘Learn Chemistry Approved’
stamp to show they were not originally developed by the RSC. As part of the
partnership, the ABPI has featured Learn Chemistry on their own education
site. View these
