This paper discusses the use of electronic voting systems specifically in a range of
outreach contexts. The Department of Chemistry at the University of Reading and the
School of Chemistry at the University of Southampton are actively involved in delivering
outreach activities at primary and secondary school level with a view to inspiring a new
generation of budding chemists. Voting systems are successful in engaging students
across all age groups as demonstrated by our experiences with youngsters aged 4 to 18.
They are especially effective at breaking down the barriers of non communication thrown
up by students when faced with a difficult question and encouraging the participation of
even the most reticent teenager.
