FOUR Year 13 students at a Baildon school have taken part in a “Chemistry Olympics.”

The Titus Salt School pupils recently took part in the 49th Chemistry Olympiad competition, organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

The competition was set up to stretch and challenge Post-16 Chemistry students by testing their chemical knowledge.

Students are awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze on their marks at the competition.

Titus Salt pupils Harriet Frost and Francesca Li received Bronze, Jake Ejraee received a Silver award and Nicole Mitchell was awarded a Gold.

Nicole’s score was one of the highest in the country and she will now go forward to the next round, which involves a selection weekend combining both theoretical and practical testing.

Questions are based on real-world chemistry problems that often stimulate much debate, raising awareness of what chemistry is all about.

That round will be held at the prestigious University of Cambridge.
