Bennies Chemistry students invited to attend National Chemistry Titration Competition
Recently our senior Chemistry students competed at the RACI NSW Chemistry Titration Competition at Barker College with excellent results.
Recently our senior Chemistry students competed at the RACI NSW Chemistry Titration Competition at Barker College. The students have 90 minutes to perform a chemical reaction several times with exact quantities in order to accurately determine the concentration of an acetic acid solution. They are then assigned marks based on the error in their results such that the lower the mark they receive the less error they have. Titration requires a steady hand, an observant eye and precision in measuring and calculating data. Our students had a great time and performed the technique well. Clara Goossens (Year 11) achieved the lowest (best) score at the venue with only 4 points followed by Amanda Grima (Year 12) in second overall place with 16 points.
One of our Year 12 teams has now also been invited to the National Titration Competition in October for the second year in a row. Congratulations to Amanda Grima, Alicia Chen and Taylor McMahon on this fantastic achievement.
