On Thursday 25th January, a team of KS3 and KS4 pupils competed in the regional heat for the Royal Society of Chemistry ‘Top of the Bench’ competition. This competition is designed to encourage and reward high achievement and give pupils an insight as to what Chemistry is like in a university environment.
The heat took place in the David Keir Building, at Queen’s University, Belfast. The team consisted of Mark Briggs & Shannon McBride (Form 3), Louis Adams (Form 4) and Ollie Parkes (Form 5). The team finished a very creditable fourth out of fourteen teams from across the Province. The experience gained was invaluable to the members of the team and we congratulate them on their performance.
