Salters' Festival of Chemistry at University of Bradford


48 students from 12 schools in the local area will enjoy an exciting day of chemistry at the Salters' Festival of Chemistry to be held at The University of Bradford on Wednesday 25 April.

During the morning the teams will take part in a competitive, hands-on, practical activity, “The Salters’ Challenge” –The Mystery of the Missing Centenary Trophy- in which they will use their analytical chemistry skills. In the afternoon, they will compete in the “University Challenge”, a practical activity chosen by the University, which will then be followed by a fun lecture. The day will end with a Prizegiving at which all participants will be given individual fun prizes and participation certificates. The winning teams will be awarded prizes for their schools.

The Salters' Festivals of Chemistry are an initiative of The Salters' Institute, whose aim is to promote the appreciation of chemistry and related sciences amongst the young, and to encourage careers in the teaching of chemistry and in the UK chemical and allied industries.

The Festival at Bradford is part of the Festival programme which comprises 53 Festivals taking place at Universities and Colleges throughout the UK and the Republic of Ireland between March and June 2018.

The Institute is delighted to once again be working in partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2018.
