Royal Society for Chemistry Annual Global Experiment

Chemistry

Royal Society for Chemistry – National Chemistry Week 16-23 Nov 2013

During National Chemistry Week, a group of primary 7 pupils from Hillhead Primary School visited the School of Education to participate in the Royal Society for Chemistry annual global experiment. This year’s experiment was to measure the vitamin C content of different fruits and vegetables.  The pupils worked with final year undergraduate student teachers, who had chosen to specialise in science education. The pupils followed the same protocol as pupils all over the world and on completion of the experiment, they were able to upload their results to a worldwide database.

The event was organized by Mrs Delia Wilson of the School of Education.
