Bridgewater High gives a helping hand to inspire young chemists
This Saturday Bridgewater High School will be hosting the regional heat of a
national competition for students from schools north of the Mersey who
aspire to be the next generation of chemists.
The annual competition ‘Top of the Bench’ is organised by the Royal Society
of Chemistry (RSC). It aims to stretch the brightest and most able young
chemists aged between 14 and 16 from schools in the area. In teams of four
they will be tested through a lab task, an hour exam and a poster
This year the poster’s subject is linked to the topic of the International Year of
Chemistry 2011, “Water”.
Bridgewater High School Head teacher Tim Long said: “I’m very pleased that
the school has been selected to host this exciting competition. I sincerely
hope that the schools that attend Bridgewater High School on the day will
feel welcome and I’d like to wish them all good luck.”
The overall winner of the regional competition will be announced at the end
of Saturday 10 December and that school will represent the Liverpool
section at the national final, which will take place on 31 March 2012 at the
Imperial College London.
