Congratulations to S1 pupils who scooped the first prize at the Salters’ Festival of Chemistry in partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry hosted at the University of Glasgow. 

Congratulations to S1 pupils who scooped the first prize at the Salters’ Festival of Chemistry in partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry hosted at the University of Glasgow. 

The pupils conducted experiments to solve a mystery and competed against pupils aged between 11-13 from schools across Scotland. 

Jamie, Elli, Abbas and Esther spent the day carrying out practical experiments in the University labs and completed problem solving exercises in the school labs in preparation for the event 

On the day, they worked in pairs to solve the challenges, with the University’s PhD students acting as demonstrators on the day. 

Following this, they participated in the ‘University Challenge’ and took part in several problem-solving exercises before being judged on their practical work, team work and logical thinking skills by judges. 

The Hutchie scientists were very pleased to win 1st prize at the first ever Chemistry festival hosted by the University. They received certificates, mini molecular model kits and accepted a prize of a large molecular model kit for the school.

The chemistry department celebrated the fantastic success for the pupils and are looking forward to the event next year.
