This prestigious annual event celebrates high levels of excellence within the science education sector.  This year the Ceremony took place at Fishmongers’ Hall on Thursday 20 November 2014.  200 guests attended the Prizegiving Ceremony and lunch reception.

We were very pleased to welcome Lord Sainsbury of Turville, who delivered a keynote address and presented the Awards at the Ceremony.  During his address to the audience, Lord Sainsbury commended the Salters’ Institute saying it “was in the vanguard of support of Chemistry education, and laterally Biology and Physics” and talked about his work with the Gatsby Foundation which he said has “supported science and engineering which cover every aspect of life and hold the key to solving problems on the planet in the coming years such as feeding the population and renewable fuels” He also commented that Science can provide a good career - by making a contribution to society by following exciting and rewarding careers to combat global challenges”
