This is a chemistry competition that tests technical chemistry skills and, attention to detail, as well as the ability to work quickly and efficiently under pressure. Our Year 12 team of Bianca Abbott, Laura Wait and Olivia Ferres came third on the day (out of more than 60 teams), with an excellent result that has earnt them a place in the National Finals. Three Year 11 students also returned outstanding individual results, and all girls gave their best to produce very accurate results. It was an honour, and pleasure, to see how well they represented the College and how much they enjoyed the event. It was a great opportunity for the girls to work inside a university laboratory, associate with like-minded people and to talk to UQ staff, and students, about study and careers in Science and Chemistry.
