TOP OF THE BENCH COMPETITION 2017
Four students attended the ‘Top of the Bench’ chemistry competition at the University of York on the 23 January. The students had to complete 9 different tasks with a five minute time limit on each. Some of the tasks included putting 20 unknown masses into order of heaviest to lightest, and a chemical alphabet challenge.
The team, made up of Peter Fewster, Max Martin, Rebecca Laverack and Hannah Lawless, placed sixth overall, with some high scoring rounds achieved by some excellent chemical knowledge and team work. This was a fantastic placing as it was the first time the school had taken part in the competition – We will definitely be back again next year now we know what to expect!
