The textbook set won bronze in Category 3 for secondary education as “a rich package of student’s and teacher’s materials in printed and digital formats with an emphasis on chemistry as a part of natural sciences and its important everyday life applications,” the judges said, adding that it had an “amazing gallery of selected world-famous philosophers and scientists as well as a special glossary providing added value and expanding students’ knowledge of chemistry history and modern perspectives”.
