Science has immediate application in our everyday lives, a direct impact on materials, consumer products, energy supplies, food, health and the environment. CIEC works to support the teaching and learning of science.
Key Stages 3 & 4
CIEC creates resources to help pupils and students understand science through the context in which it is encountered, and the industries that rely on it.
Through a combination of resource packs, reference books and free-access web sites, many areas of the science curriculum are covered, from polymers, chlorine and hydrogen to food additives, sustainability and risk.
Some publications are aimed specifically at post-16 studies, including the popular reference book The Essential Chemical Industry (now in its fifth edition), its companion volume, The Essential Plastics Industry, and two of our web sites, Catalysis and Greener Industry.
