Between the 19th and 22nd of July Surfachem supported the 2018 Bradford Science Festival. Following a hugely successful event in 2017 which saw 35,000 attendees, the festival was back this year to continue its quest to deliver innovative and high quality, science driven content.

Taking place at the National Science and Media Museum, Bradford’s City Park and The Broadway Shopping Centre, the festival offered adults, children and families the opportunity to engage with science through fun events, challenges and demonstrations.

Being part of the Bradford Science Festival supports Surfachem’s focus to make career opportunities within Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) attractive and accessible to future generations.

As a sponsor Surfachem participated in the festival’s launch event at the National Science and Media Museum on Thursday the 19th of July, and ‘STEM City’ during the 21st and 22nd, in City Park. A team of over 15 representatives from Surfachem volunteered their time to speak to visitors providing insight on how they entered the chemicals industry and how we all interact with chemicals every day. Surfachem’s laboratory team also provided a practical demonstration which introduced how gelling agents can create different textures and viscosities in toiletries.

“I’d like to thank everyone who came to see the Surfachem team at the Bradford Science Festival. Our team had a great time talking and demonstrating to the many visitors. As a part of our STEM programme, the festival is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of importance of the chemical industry and communicate our purpose of Delivering Chemistry for a Better Life” Greg Barton, Sales & Marketing Director, Surfachem.
