Four Year 8 pupils have been placed third in a practical competition at the Salters’ Institute Festivals of Chemistry.

Highgate chemistry teacher, Ms Muhara, explains: ‘Working in pairs, our four pupils carried out experiments, recorded their results in a suitable format and made deductions. We were so proud to see our group placed third in this practical competition. All greatly enjoyed their time there.’

The Salters’ Institute plays a major role in supporting chemistry teaching, encouraging young people to pursue careers in the UK chemical industries, and promoting chemical education. Their annual festival is just one of their many initiatives to foster appreciation of chemistry amongst young people.
