CIEC receives Chemical Industries Association Reputation Award
We are thrilled to have received this award in recognition of our work with industry partners to open up scientific outreach to primary school children
CIEC was delighted to receive, along with Johnson Matthey, the Chemical Industries Association Reputation Award which was presented at the 2022 Chemical Industries Annual Awards event on 16 June 2022. The evening celebrated the success of the UK chemical industry and the Reputation Award was given in recognition of the work done by CIEC through the Children Challenging Industry (CCI) programme.
CIEC works with industry partners such as Johnson Matthey to help primary aged children to recognise the links between the science that they do in school and the science that happens in industry. Over 4,600 children have visited the Johnson Matthey site as a result of this collaboration. This has led to over 60% of those children involved in the CCI programme envisaging a career in industry and over 50% stating that they would like to be a scientist or engineer.
