Polymer Study ToursTeachers get real experience operating processing equipment
UK universities are once again playing host to science and teachers from across the country in order to promote plastics and rubber technology and encourage its place in the classroom.
Bookings for the 2013 Polymer Study Tours, which are held at the Universities of Manchester, London Metropolitan and Edinburgh Napier, are now being taken.
Over the previous 25 years, more than 2800 teachers have taken advantage of the opportunity to attend the course, which, thanks to the sponsorship of companies and industry bodies, is free to all participants.
The courses are organised under the aegis of founder sponsor, the Worshipful Company of Horners Educational Trust. The IOM3 helps to promote the course and manage the delegate administration and the BPF offers financial management and sponsorship via individual BPF Groups.
The course gives delegates the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of plastics and rubber technology and provides sources of material relevant to the modern curriculum.
Any companies or BPF Groups wishing to sponsor the Polymer Study Tours can also get details from the website below. BPF members are encouraged to publicise the Tours to their local secondary schools.
