Audrey Strong from the Salters Institute said the Salters Festival of Chemistry at the North West Regional College’s (NWRC) Strand Road campus

set a precedent for similar festival events to take place across Further Education Colleges in Northern Ireland.

“Involving young competitors from a range of secondary 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,” she said.
 

“We have been mightily impressed with this College, both in terms of its course provision and learning environment, and also it’s partnerships with stakeholders across the industry,” she added.

“We wish to congratulate all of the young pupils who took part in the events, and hope that their experiences have enabled them to consider a career in this industry for the future,” said Ms Strong.
