What to include in an A-level induction day powerpoint?

    So our school is unable to host A-level induction day for year 11s, so we are making sure induction day powerpoints are available to them, along with a LOOM voice over.
    I teach chemistry so we do practicals on induction day and don't have much of a powerpoint.

    I'm looking for ideas on what would be beneficial to include and any creative ideas that will make reading it online a bit more fun.

    I already have a virtual lab experiment and some info about the department and exam board.

    Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

    Boring but necessary bits.
    structure of the course
    GCSE Grades needed to enrol
    Sufficient emphasis on the hard bits to put off the kids who like tipping things into things and looking at pretty colours but can't do equations.
    All the good things you can do with A level chemistry.
    Some of the more easily summarisable in one page practicals

    Hooks to get them reading it
    Picture quiz
    Fun facts
    Terrible jokes
    Where do you get mercury from?
