Salters’ Chemistry Festival


In May, Mrs Hoggarth took four Year 8 boys (Aaron Birkett, Josh Callow, Jack Vine and Hayden Wallace) to Lancaster University to attend the Salters’ Festival of Chemistry. These events were being held by Salters in different locations throughout the country.

The students took part in chemistry activities in the university laboratories and lecture theatres. One involved a CSI scenario in which they had to work in pairs to solve the crime and another which involved some chemistry problem solving and method writing. They also were shown some "flash bang" demonstrations.

All the boys were a credit to themselves and the school and it was a really enjoyable day.
