Welcome to the Salters’ Institute

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.

2018 is the Institute’s Centenary year, and we are focusing on the critical ages of 11 – 14, when young people form ideas about the kind of career they want. Find out how you can inspire more young people to be scientists and technicians here.

The Institute’s core activities include: Salters’ Institute Festivals of Chemistry, Curriculum Development, Salters’ National Awards for Science Technicians and Salters’ Chemistry Camps.
