The Salters Institute

The Salters Institute

In 1918 the Salters’ Company founded the Salters’ Institute of Industrial Chemistry, initially to assist young chemistry students returning from the war to complete their studies. Today the Salters’ Institute plays a major role in the support of chemistry teaching, the encouragement of young people to pursue careers in the UK chemical industries, and the promotion of chemical education including the whole area of curriculum development.

The Salters’ Chemistry Club encourages schools to set up Chemistry Clubs and then to take part in Salters’ Festivals of Chemistry. During the last eleven years over 31,500 students have experienced the fun of practical chemistry through the Salters’ Festivals of Chemistry have been hosted to date by more than 45 universities throughout the UK and Ireland in partnership with over 200 chemical and related companies.

More recently, Salters’ Chemistry Camps have been established with the aim of encouraging young people to participate in the fun of chemistry and help motivate them into developing a long term interest in the subject and its applications in modern life.
