Students excel in Cambridge Chemistry Challenge competition

TWENTY young chemists are celebrating after receiving gold, silver and copper awards in the prestigious Cambridge Chemistry Challenge.

The 90 minute written paper is set by an experienced team of teachers and university chemists and is open to students from all over the world who are interested in chemistry and want to take their studies further.

Laurence Potts, Second in department for Chemistry, said: “The Cambridge Chemistry Challenge stretches students significantly beyond the syllabus and requires them to apply their knowledge to university level problems.

“It was a very challenging paper so they should all be very proud of what they have achieved.”
