Heathcote team takes part in Essex Chemistry Mastermind 2017
Four of our KS4 students took part in the first round of the Essex Chemistry Mastermind 2017 competition. The aim of the first round is to select a team of year 9-11 pupils to represent the Essex section in the National Royal Society of Chemistry Top of the Bench Competition. The quizmaster is Dr Alan Osborne.
They had a chance to prepare for the high level of challenge in the first paper by using a sample 15-minute test paper. All students agreed that although they found the actual paper really challenging, the sample paper raised their motivation to look into aspects of chemistry which they had not considered before.
We'll keep our fingers crossed for Shervin, Patrick, Chanel and Niloufar!
