Year 9 Salters’ Chemistry Competition at Queen’s University

Well done to Isla Annett, Emma Gormley, Mollai Hughes and Keeva Todd who took part in the Salters’ Festival of Chemistry at Queen’s University. The girls had to work as a team to use chemical tests to solve two practical challenges. The girls acquitted themselves very well, and were commended for their efforts. To finish the day the girls enjoyed an explosion-filled ‘Chemistry Magic’ lecture delivered by the Queen’s chemistry department.

Meabhdh Thornbury, Ciara Boyle, Ava Finnegan & Orlaith Webb.

They were assisted on the day by fellow pupils who helped present our games to the other schools & youth groups.  All teams got to play all of Global Goals games and at the end had a chance to vote for their favourites.   Our team helpers were: - Aoife Loughran, Cora McFall, Laoiseach Graham & Summer McCann.  The students had a great time, the DCU campus was a lovely venue and we were lucky enough to have really good weather.
