Y7 & 8 Salters' Festival of Chemistry
In April Mr Gannon and Mrs Lees from the chemistry department took a group of Year 7 and 8 students to Lancaster University for the Salters’ Festival of Chemistry.
They were given a series of practical challenges and had to compete against many other schools to solve a chemical problem.
The students did very well and learned lots about chemistry and how a university chemistry department works. The day finished with a colourful demonstration lecture with plenty of fizzing, banging, popping….well that’s chemistry!
