Salters\' Festival of Chemistry

03 July 2009

On Monday 27 April four boys from the Shells attended the Salters\' Festival of Chemistry at Birmingham University. The day consisted of two competitions, one run by The Salters Institute and the other by the University. Our team came 3rd out of the 20 schools that took part in the in the latter competition. The day ended in a display of chemical magic including dipping various objects in liquid nitrogen and breaking them and chemical reactions to produce luminous products. The day was very enjoyable and I would definitely recommend it to any future shells who enjoy Science.
