Year 12 Chemistry

Sixth Form 'Hands on at Oxford University'

On Friday 12th January, the Year 12 Chemistry students were delighted to attend the Physical Chemistry Department at the University of Oxford. Students were involved with working out the amount of dye which is present in cough medicine, along with using their excellent practical and mathematical skills to solve a scientific mystery.

It was a fantastic opportunity for the students to work within in an undergraduate laboratory and have a first-hand teaching experience from a university lecturer. It was a challenging and enjoyable experience that the students gained a good deal from participating in.
