Student taster day:

Today we have had year 10 students in from local feeder schools. We have been undertaking chemical test in order to identify an unknown compound.

The test performed were the basic wet chemistry test that would be studied as part of an AS course and not too dissimilar from  the format of the PAG’s that our current students undertake.

The skills used are similar to those used when performing presumptive test in forensic chemistry.
