Chemistry Students Participate in Medical Scheme at Warwick University 

Earlier this week, 15 lucky year 10 students were offered the unique opportunity to take part in Warwick University’s medical chemistry scheme.

The day was a wonderful experience for the triple set science students, as they provided access to experiments, which are not available in school science lessons.

There were two main practical's that students had to complete throughout the course of the day. These resulted in us making paracetamol and aspirin.

The experiments seemed difficult to complete at first, however the university’s eager chemists (PhD students) provided a lot of helpful advice and explained the science relating to the attraction between certain chemical bonds.

The day was full of scientific knowledge and allowed students to understand what it is like to work as an undergraduate chemist at Warwick University. 

Thank you for Mrs Mitchard and Mr Keddie for helping us with the experiments and attending the visit.
