We are delighted to be returning to Bericap in Hull for the 2023 East Yorkshire Polymer Study Tour for 11-19 teachers.

Bericap is a global manufacturer of polymer closures for food, beverage and industrial applications.  The course starts on Friday morning with an introduction to the company followed by tours of the site.  After the afternoon break we start explore the impact of polymers on the environment, a topic that usually promotes some very engaging discussion. The second day will feature more information to boost your subject knowledge and an important session, led by a practicing teacher, on how you can use the information from the course in your lessons. 

The course will be taking place on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 November 2023.
