Year 8 Salters' Chemistry Festival

On Tuesday 13th June four Year 8 pupils, Ben Chevassut, Elenor Nyren, Isabel Nyren and Edward Peasgood, attended a Year 8 Chemistry Festival at the University of Brighton.
They were nominated by their Science teachers for continued enthusiasm, hard work and consistent high results all year, and then selected through an application process.
During the festival the UCTC team completed two highly demanding practical challenges in a university laboratory, and attended an exciting lecture demonstrating many advanced techniques.  Competing against fourteen other schools, the pupils were judged on teamwork, problem solving, a written lab report and lab etiquette by University professors.  The UCTC team exhibited excellent teamwork and submitted a high quality report, winning them second place overall! They won lots of Chemistry goodies to take home with them and a much-needed MolyMod kit for the school.
