As it is Chemistry Week this week, we are launching a Chemistry Competition for students and teachers. The theme is ‘Chemistry in Everything’ and the competition involves taking a photo and explaining the Chemistry in it – the more creative the better!
There will be house points and goodies available for all entries (including those from staff) and prizes for the top 5 photos. Please can all entries either be given to me (in M8) or emailed to email@example.com by Friday 11th December and the Science Faculty will decide on the winners before the end of term.
Below are some ideas to get you thinking:
Fireworks: the colours in fireworks are caused by metal salts
Coca cola (fizzing): carbon dioxide gas causing bubbles
Plant: photosynthesis reaction equation – carbon dioxide + water –> oxygen + glucose
You can also speak to any science teacher or look on the internet for some more ideas.
We look forward to receiving the amazing photos!
