Salters Festival at the Department of Chemistry

Four lucky Year 9 students – Sambor, Esmeralda, Maddie and Jacob – had their names picked out of a hat to attend the Salters’ Institute Festival of Chemistry last week, at the Department of Chemistry in Cambridge.

CAST students attended along with 18 other schools from the Cambridge area as well as London, Norwich and Peterborough.

Our Year 9s worked in teams with students from other schools to synthesise and purify paracetamol in an exercise led by university students. At the end of the day, the students attended a lecture on the Periodic Table led by Dr Peter Wothers (pictured).

The whole day was a really enjoyable experience, so thank you to the Department of Chemistry for hosting.

** Below are some quotes from students who attended

“I found the Salters’ Festival was really well done and I enjoyed working with Petr, an undergraduate from the Department of Chemistry during our practical activities.”

“It was really educational and fun at the same time! I met a lot of new people and learned a lot. I absolutely loved the chemistry demonstrations at the end of the day, they were really cool!”

“The Festival was a new experience that I thoroughly enjoyed.”
