Almost 1,000 students and 18 different Kirklees schools have now passed through the Community Science Labs at Syngenta in Huddersfield.

 

Staffed by employees at the site and supported by students from Kirklees College, the Labs have opened 47 times since their creation two years ago with the aim of inspiring young people in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).

During the visit, we share information about Syngenta's important role in agriculture and our sustainability programme known as the Good Growth Plan. We provide a series of Lab based experiments around distillation and filtration and we also offer a tour of a production facility during the visit.
