Pupils who took part in a festival of chemistry at the ‘Tech’ have impressed event organisers.
The winners of the Salters Challenge were as follows: 1st place: Foyle College; 2nd place: Loreto Letterkenny; 3rd place: St Cecilia’s College
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.
