Chemical Scientific Society “Flogiston”


In May 2001 on Faculty of Chemistry of Warsaw University of Technology our Society was reactivated. It gathers young and ambitious chemistry lovers to help them in developing their scientific passion. Friendly atmosphere, ambitious projects and great zeal of our members create great place for discovering a spirit of chemistry. Every of us learns how to plan and organise events, our creativity is being stimulated on every meeting. We also learn how to cooperate by preparing numerous events. All of that takes place under the supervision of PhD. Eng. Aldona Zalewska, supervisor of our society.

Our Goals
Main goal of Scientific Society “Flogiston” is developing interest of our members, students of Faculty of Chemistry and all fans of that branch of science. We do it by organising special lectures, chemical shows and conferences. This way we spread and share the knowledge that can not be found in typical student’s books. Here, you can see different meaning of word “chemistry”.


The main project of our Society is organising an international scientific conference what gives young chemists all over the world to present their scientific results and attend the lectures of world famous professors.Members and friends of “Flogiston” want to broaden their knowledge and spread it. That’s where idea of conference for students of schools from and close to Warsaw. Preparing these projects let people integrate, learn us responsibility, and makes realisation of common scientific projects possible. More informations about our biggest projects can be found in sections YoungChem and Skołowany Weekend

We also organise chemistry shows, where theories from the books become colourful and fascinating.  Our polished and constantly developed choice of experiments can be found interesting for people at any age.. This way we show young people chemistry, also learning them respect for this branch of science. Organisation of shows is coordinated by Head of Shows Section. You can contact this section via email in “Contact” section.

Science and Development
Important part of our society is Scientific Section, where you can hear about new scientific discoveries, what makes science more friendly and easier to understand.  We also organise lectures, meetings and help in finding internships on Warsaw University of Technology.

Flogiston in media
Chemical Scientific Society “Flogiston” is very active in media. In recent years we cooperated with Polsat and NEXT TV televisions. We took part in morning shows “Kawa czy herbata” and “Dzień dobry TVN” twice and we gave short interviews for TVN Warszawa,, Radio Eska, Radioaktywnie. Our Science Festival Skołowany Weekend was patronized by Polskie Radio Program IV. As a result, our members can be heard in “Nawiedzeni” audition.  at the request of rector of Warsaw University of Technology, our members recorded a video about our group together with Wiktor Niedzicki, creator of “Laboratory” TV programme.

We are open on any kind of cooperation and we are not afraid of any challenge. Achievements mentioned above confirm that we are real professionalists. Any informations needed to contact can be found in “Contact” section.

Activity in our society is 100% voluntary. We want you to be passionate, active and able to cooperate. “Flogiston” is non-profit organisation, which means that as a member we do not have any material profit ((maybe besides tea and sugar ;))

If you want to join, come to 301 room on Tuesday at 17.15 at the Department of Chemistry. If you have any questions – our e-mail contact can be found in “Contacts” section.
