Year 9 Chemistry Interform Challenge - 'The Chemical Clock'

Year 9 students have excelled in the ‘Chemical Clock’ inter-form competition. Two students from each tutor group were set the challenge of devising a mixture of solutions that would change colour after exactly 1 minute.

Following 20 minutes of experimentation, the students had to demonstrate their reaction in front of Dr Hall and Mr Skelly and the team closest to 1 minute were declared the winners.

The results were incredibly close, with 3rd and 4th place separated by just one hundredth of a second. However, the 9S team of Sam Jordan and Jason Christoforou were the clear winners with a time of 59.63s – less than half a second away from the target time. Congratulations to all the students who took part.
