Chemistry with Cabbage, the award winning initiative set up by Lorelly Wilson in 1999 to inspire students to study chemistry, continues to go from strength to strength.
The initiative was recently profiled in Elements Magazine, Chemicals Northwest's quarterly glossy magazine, providing the latest industry news, features and members' contributions. The industry-led support organisation represents the £10bn North West chemical sector, the largest in the UK.
Chemistry with Cabbage works with schools, universities, museums and students of all ages, from tinies to university graduates, doing practical experiments to show the relevance of chemistry is solving problems. It currently visits nearly 200 primary schools a year.
The scheme, which Multisol UK proudly sponsors, has won awards from the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Chemical Business Association and Women in Science and Engineering and is an Honourary Fellow of Manchester University, Chester University and the British Science Association.
“A brilliant day of science. All the children were engaged and able to recount the many facts which they had learnt. We would love to see more of these workshops in our school. The children loved the mix of practical and demonstrations. Mrs. Wilson is always brilliant!”

“Wow! What an incredible day! The Year 6 children in my class absolutely loved their day. In such a short space of time, children of all abilities learned a great deal. The sessions were fantastically resourced, well explained and most of all engaging and fun. Every future Year 6 class at our school is in for a treat.”

“A fantastic fun-filled day. The pace of the day was excellent. So much was covered during such a short time. It was very enjoyable to see the children’s reactions to the experiments. They were challenged in so many ways. I am very impressed with the way the key vocabulary and concepts reintroduced and explained. A really well-run day; the children have loved it”
