Salters’ Institute Festival of Chemistry

On Wednesday 10th May, four of our Year 8 pupils, Sarah, Nadira, Michaela and Mma, entered the Salters Chemistry Challenge at Queen Mary, University of London. They spent the day working in the university’s chemistry laboratories and completing two scientific investigations similar to those carried out at university. They firstly had to solve a crime using chromatography and chemical tests and then had two complete a colour challenge using chemicals. Our pupils won first prize in the competition showing great tenacity, curiosity and practical skills.
