Setting off for Bristol University, a group of Year 10 students set out in anticipation of some exciting science exploration on 14/ March 2019.

This was the first time that SDCC pupils had been invited to the University of Bristol ChemNet conference and the day involved three lectures designed to inspire and engage pupils within the field of Chemistry.

Our students were wowed by invited speakers; Prof Tim Gallagher talking about the pharmaceutical industry, Sarah Michel discussing her work and innovations using sugars to aid wound healing within babies and Dr Tim Harrison who discussed the power and changes of various chemical reactions.

Our students left Bristol University with an invigorated passion for Chemistry and even more determination to secure fantastic grades within this subject!
