The Salters' Festivals of Chemistry are an initiative of the Salters' Institute. Their objective is to help promote the appreciation of chemistry and related sciences among the young.
Since 2005 the Salters' Festivals of Chemistry have been in partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry. We thank them for their continued support.
The Festivals are one-day fun events held at universities throughout the UK and Ireland. They begin in late March and run through to mid June.
Salters' Festivals provide the opportunity for
enthusiastic young students to spend a day in
a university department and to take part in practical
chemistry activities which are fun! Prizes are
awarded to the winning teams and all students
receive participation certificates and fun prizes.
During the last twelve years over 35,300 students
have experienced the fun of practical chemistry
through the Salters' Festivals and sponsorship
in support of the Festivals has been raised from
over fifty companies.
