Salters’ Chemistry Camp is back on campus

Bath pupils have the chance to investigate what makes jellyfish glow in the dark at the University’s Department of Chemistry this week.

Pupils from The Royal High School are joining 15-year-old pupils from all over the UK, having been selected through their schools to participate in two residential Salters’ Chemistry Camps from the 12 to 14 July and 14 to 16 July.

The fun camps run by Dr John Lowe aim to develop a long lasting passion for the subject. Pupils will be asked to create a photograph without a camera, often known as ‘Blue Printing’, and be amateur detectives for the day.

Over the last twelve years more than 5,550 students have been entertained and educated at Salters’ Chemistry Camp. This year another 800 pupils will join this figure.

The Salters’ Institute plays a major role in encouraging and promoting a chemistry education within young pupils. The institute also promotes the idea of pursuing careers within the UK chemical industries.
