Johnson Matthey appreciate the importance of encouraging young scientists into industry

Congratulations to Adel Neale and Debbie McGarrity who were part of the winning entry in the
 ‘People and community development collaboration’ category in Johnson Matthey’s Collaboration in Action Awards. They were nominated for their involvement with the Children Challenging Industry programme now running in the Hertfordshire Johnson Matthey site. They have been working with the CIEC Advisory Teacher for Hertfordshire, Clare Warren. Clare delivers the CCI lessons in school before the children visit the JM site at Royston. So far being involved in CCI has enabled JM to introduce 300 school children to science and industry. Johnson Matthey’s Chief Executive Robert Macleod was delighted that JM is reaching so many primary children because ‘collaboration is a key part of Johnson Matthey’s business strategy as we enter our third century ‘and he sent his congratulations to Adel and Debbie.  

 Johnson Matthey is also involved with CCI in the North East where Jenny Harvey, CIEC Advisory Teacher for the North East, organises site visits by local children to the Billingham JM site as part of their CCI involvement.
