Perse students find winning formula for Cambridge Chemistry Challenge
Perse chemists have secured a sweep of awards in a stretching chemistry competition for lower sixth formers including a top ‘Roentgenium’, awarded to less than 1% of entrants.
Eleven Perse students received awards in the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge, also known as the C3L6. The competition is set by an experienced team of teachers and university chemists and aims to stretch and challenge students, taking them significantly beyond the syllabus and encouraging them to think about science in the way they would at university.
Stuart Knowles, winner of the Roentgenium, has also won an invitation to the residential camp at the University of Cambridge at the end of August. William Drake’s gold is especially impressive as he is a Year 11 student.
The Perse award winners are:
