On the 11th December 2015 St John Bosco Arts College entered a team into the Royal Society of Chemistry’s 'Top of the Bench' competition. The event took place at Wirral Metropolitan College, the competition is a yearly event and is aimed at enthusing and exciting students in Chemistry, helping secure the next generation of talented chemical scientists.
The following students took part:
Lucy Patterson (Y11)
Eden Rothwell (Y9)
Alice-May Hardaker (Y9)
Charlie McKenna (Y9).
The team had to design and research a ‘special chemical molecule’ and design a poster based on this molecule. The students presented their poster and took part in a series of activities including practical experiments and an exam. We faced strong competition from the other schools and I would like to congratulate those who took part for their hard work and enthusiasm.
