Top of The Bench event
Congratulations to Carys, Emily, Fiona and Lea who represented DGS at the Royal Society of Chemistry's Top of the Bench Regional Competition, held at Oxford University on 20th November.
The event had two parts: a poster competition for which the teams had prepared a poster about an element of their choice, and an extended practical challenge in the laboratory where the teams used chromatography and ultra violet absorption to identify and characterise unknown compounds and mixtures.
Our team did well in the lab challenge, narrowly missing out on one of the top places. They were delighted to be awarded a prize for their poster on "the Secrets of Silicon", which included a sample of silicon the team had made themselves from sand!
Great work girls!
