Last month, a team consisting of four members from P8 had the opportunity to visit Oxford University for the Festival of Chemistry. In the morning, the teams took part in a competitive hands-on practical activity, "The Salters' Challenge", where they had no time to prepare in advance. Pupils were expected to be able to explain the activity or the experiments they had demonstrated when questioned by the judges. In the afternoon the teams took part in a competitive hands-on practical activity, the "University Challenge". The afternoon then finished with a Chemical Magic Show and the announcement of winners. It was a great day for all who attended with Mrs Alwaheidi.
