After lunch the students took part in the University Challenge which was another laboratory based experiment. The University Challenge is known as Technicians Trouble. The students were asked to mix a number of chemicals to get specific colours. The task for the students during this challenge was to figure out what chemicals were added together to get the specific colurs they needed. They then had to explain how they got their colours to the judges.
After the students completed the second laboratory activity they went to listen to a talk on the work of a forensic scientist and learned how science and particularly chemistry plays an important part in solving crimes. The final activity of the day was a Chemistry Magic Show. This was a one-hour event, which was full of spectacular experiments, and lots of explosions took place, which the students enjoyed. The students had a very enjoyable day and as a memento of their participation the students received prizes donated by the Salters’ Company and Participation Certificates. The students have to be complemented for their commitment to science by attending this event and representing the school at a weekend.
