Yesterday, four of our year 8’s (Evan, Lilia, Alexandra and James) attended Salter’s Chemistry Festival at the University of Manchester along with eighteen other schools from across the North West. Our intrepid team came 2nd in the University Challenge….a fantastic result!! They got to work in a real life lab where they had to solve two challenges using a range of chemical equipment. The day rounded off with a series of fantastic Chemistry demonstrations with bangs and sparks galore!!!
