24/01/2020 ROYAL SOCIETY OF CHEMISTRY TOP OF THE BENCH COMPETITION

On Thursday 23rd January, a team of KS3 and KS4 pupils competed in the regional heat for the Royal Society of Chemistry ‘Top of the Bench’ competition which took place in the David Keir Building, at Queen’s University, Belfast.  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.

Fourteen schools from throughout Northern Ireland participated. The Loreto team consisted of Sean Faulkner and Aislinn Moore (Year 10), Grace McClements (Year 11) and Darcy Peacock (Year 11).  The competition consisted of three sections. The first section involved some experiments in the teaching laboratory, the second was a paper exercise, testing the pupil’s knowledge of key fundamentals of safety and the third section consisted of a short quiz on general Chemistry.  The pupils all enjoyed the experience and the Chemistry department congratulate them on their effort.
