Salters’ Festival of Chemistry

Our team of Years 7 and 8 won second place in the University Challenge competition at the Salters’ Festival of Chemistry at the London South Bank University. The festival was held on 18 May 2017 and we were delighted to take part in this exciting and educational event.

Pupils also had the opportunities to discover chemistry in a practical way with plastic bottles exploding in dustbins, colour changes and chemical magic with liquid nitrogen were just some of the exciting experiments on show.

The Salters’ Festival was organised by LSBU in partnership with The Royal Society of Chemistry and is one of a series of 49 educational festivals taking place at universities and colleges throughout the UK and the Republic of Ireland between March and June 2017.
