The Salters’ Institute’s Festivals of Chemistry are aimed at 14-16 year olds. Our Festivals encourage learners to ‘Discover Chemistry’ and explore chemistry as a subject and as a pathway to many careers.
The Salters’ Institute’s Festivals of Chemistry began as one-day events for students aged 11-13 years old. They involved teams of students visiting their local universities to take part in Salters’ Chemistry Challenges and other chemistry-related activities.
The aims of the Festivals, prior to 2021, were to make chemistry more exciting, more relevant and fun for students, and to encourage schools to set up their own chemistry clubs.
None of this could have been achieved without the continual help, support and sponsorship from over eighty universities and organisations.
