Salters' Institute Festival of Chemistry 2017

Four S1 pupils took part in The Salters’ Institute Festival of Chemistry on Wednesday 24th May 2017 at the School of Chemistry, University of Glasgow.  Harris Ferguson, Adam Bhutta, Keira Birks and Melissa Brown completed a series of chemistry challenges during the course of the day. They were competing against 17 other secondary school from across Scotland and as far afield as Aberdeen and enjoyed carrying out experiments in the university laboratories and listening to lectures from postgraduate chemistry students.
