Hi everyone,

Should it be interest or interests in the following sentence?

They organized the Chemistry Club to foster the interest/interests of school-age children in chemistry.

Thanks

    It needs to be interest. Note that “to foster an interest” is rarely used in everyday English.
    What's the best way to paraphrase this then? Can I say something like promoted/cultivated the interest of ...

    I have another example which I posted in the previous comment.
