Ajan Manoharan, Tess Lillicrapp and George Evans represented Bablake in the competition at The University of Warwick. They were given three tasks involving soft drinks. They had to analyse the acid content of Sprite, the iron content of Irn-Bru and identify organic chemicals present in both drinks. It was a very intense day, measuring and analysing against the clock, and in the final judging they just missed out on a place in the top three.
The competition was a fantastic experience for our young scientists, thank you to the Royal Society of Chemistry and The University of Warwick for such an excellent opportunity.
