For 2023, the Salters’ Institute is running its reimagined Festivals of Chemistry. Still aimed at learners aged 14-16 years old, the Festivals offer a three-stage, hybrid approach to explore all that chemistry offers as a subject area and as a gateway to many careers. The hybrid offering will include online elements, activities for the classroom, in-person events hosted at universities and a nationwide challenge. Find out more about each stage below.
This year, the programme has been created in collaboration with universities, industry and careers specialists to inspire students to pursue pathways in to chemistry and the related sciences.
We encourage students from all backgrounds and abilities to engage with the Festivals of Chemistry. This is an opportunity for students to be inspired about chemistry and the exciting and varied opportunities and careers available through studying this subject.
There are also a wealth of resources to support curriculum teaching and learning in and outside of school developed for Festivals 2021, in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Users can immerse themselves in the world of chemistry with fun experiment demonstrations, tours of university labs, mini lectures, interactive shows and much more. All these free resources are still available for teachers and learners to access.
Discover chemistry and immerse yourself in the breadth of possibilities opened by chemistry and the related sciences.
