Our Festivals of Chemistry date from the early 1990s. They have a long history of engaging learners with hands-on practical chemistry delivered at universities across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
The Salters’ Festivals of Chemistry have introduced a three-stage, hybrid approach that includes videos, classroom activities, day trips to universities and a team challenge.
Stage 1 – Discover Chemistry Careers
Videos and careers lesson plans delve into chemistry as a subject, its applications in the real world and the career pathways it offers.
Stage 2 – Discovery Days
Discovery Days take place regionally at universities with an inspiring programme including a hands-on practical chemistry experiment. There will also be CPD provision for teachers attending.
Stage 3 – Chemistry for Good Challenge
A nationwide challenge that uses Chemistry for Good. This year’s challenge focuses on teams creating innovative solutions for sustainable cities and communities, and will launch in late spring. Further information will be available from May 2023.
