Congratulation to our Y8 scientists, who did brilliantly in the annual Salters’ Chemistry Festival. Our budding young chemists were up against some stiff competition from 25 other schools from in and around London (a mixture of independent, grammar, academy and comprehensive schools).
There were two competitions held throughout the day. Our pupils did so well that they were placed 1st in the second challenge titled “The University Challenge”. The judges commented on their fantastic team effort to problem solve and analyse their results. Particular credit was given to their evaluation which was scientific, diligent and succinct.
Miss Williams was delighted with the pupils and their efforts, who ensured that it was a wonderful day for Darrick Wood School and science. Congratulations to Owen Brown 8XL, Imogen Edmundson 8XS, Freddie Bury 8XW and Simon Spencer 8XF on their outstanding achievement.
