Join the Festivals of Chemistry 2024

Registration is open for this years’ Festivals of Chemistry, encouraging 14-16-year-old learners to ‘Discover Chemistry’.

The Salters’ Institute now welcomes sign-ups for the Festivals of Chemistry 2024. The Festivals encourage learners to ‘Discover Chemistry’, explore the subject and see how it can be a pathway to many careers.

Festivals are for students aged 14-16 years old, via the registration of their teacher. Students participate in a hybrid programme that includes videos, classroom activities, day trips to universities and a team challenge. Students can participate in one or more of the three stages, which each highlight a different way of discovering chemistry.

Applications for Discovery Day (Stage 2) places are now open to schools and will close on Monday 5 February 2024. This year, Discovery Days (Stage 2) will be located at:

  • Queen Mary University of London (London and South East)

  • Queen’s University Belfast (Northern Ireland)
