On 27th March, four Year 8 students represented Coloma at a Salters’ Festival of Chemistry at Imperial College London.
Jennifer Obeng-Nyarko, Violet Price, Ricci Rogan and Arthusaa Yogarajaa Viraspillai made up the team to compete against other schools from around London. They took part in two practical chemistry-based challenges in the laboratory, one set by the Salters’ Institute, and one by Imperial College. The girls worked brilliantly as a team and showed off their practical skills.
The day ended with a lecture featuring several explosions and exciting demonstrations. Although the team did not win, the girls really enjoyed the experience of working in a university laboratory.
