Many congratulations to our team of four which gained a ‘bronze medal’ from within the very competitive field of eighteen Year 8 teams in the region vying for the honours. Raise your test tubes to Asmee, Lucy, Amy, and Henry.
Asmee takes up the story: “Going to UEA for the chemistry competition and seeing the demonstration was incredibly fun. In fact, the kitchen chemistry may have been the best part. With its light show, explosive foam and colour changing chemicals, it really did shock the audience. For the challenges, firstly, we had to solve a robbery by doing chromatography and testing unknown samples. The second challenge was very experimental – it involved making foam. The team that made the most foam in a limited amount of time won. In the end, we came third out of 18 schools, which we were very happy about. All in all, UEA has an amazing chemistry school and if we could ever go again we definitely would.”
