Congratulations to three of our Year 12 chemists, Alexandra, Emily, and Vitoria who participated in the South West Regional Heats of the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Analytical Chemistry competition at the University of Bristol on Wednesday 23rd January.
The competition required our students to undertake various unfamiliar and demanding practical Chemistry problems relevant to the chemical industry, as well as a written test competing against a field of South West independent schools. They were judged for skill, understanding, accuracy and team work.
Whilst there was no win for St Bede's, the day stretched our students and was a very unique educational experience. The students really enjoyed being able to work in a university lab and expand their chemistry knowledge. Well done.
