Salters Festival of Chemistry
On 14th June, four Lower Fourth Chemistry enthusiasts attended the Salters Festival of Chemistry at the University of Manchester Department of Chemistry.
First, they were given a forensic science task where they worked in the Manchester University Labs to find out ‘who dunnit'. THey used flame tests to identify the metal part of a salt, and test tube reactions to identify the non-metal part of the salt.
This was followed by a University Challenge, requiring the identification of five clear, colourless liquids using very limited equipment.
The day ended with a Flash Bang Show, which the girls all thought was very thrilling!
