The School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences has once again played host to high-schoolers participating in the Royal Australian Chemical Institute's annual Titration Competition.

Over two days, approximately 350 students competed in teams of three in UQ's chemistry laboratories.

The first heat took place in May, followed by the national finals in October.

Six teams that competed at UQ in the finals earned “Excellent Team” status, including third, fourth and fifth places nationally.

“The competition recognises students who are good at the experimental aspect of Chemistry, rather than just being good at exams” said retired Associate Professor Trevor Appleton (Chemistry Honours 1966), who co-organised the event with Dr Gwendolyn Lawrie.
