Yesterday (21st June) a team containing some of our most promising young scientists travelled to MMU to take part in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s annual ChemQuiz event. This event is the regional qualifier for the national “Top of the Bench” competition, and the team must consist of two year 8 students and one each from years 9 & 10. The “quiz” consists of three rounds; a general chemistry knowledge round; a practical lab-based activity and a demonstration/chemistry comprehension exercise.
Competing against 33 other teams from across the region, our students finished in an impressive 8thplace and received the prize for the outright winners of the chemistry demo/comprehension section, in which students were given unfamiliar information and asked to answer questions based on their ability to apply it.
The AGGS team was Vera P (Year 10), Christabel A (Year 9), Polina K (Year 8) & Nam V (Year 8). They were an absolute credit to the school. Well done!
