“Top of the Bench” success

Congratulations to our team of S2 – S4 scientists – Maeve Kennedy-Houston (S2), Andrew Gourley (S3), Elanor Thompson (S3) and James Painter (S4) – for getting through to the regional final of The Royal Society of Chemistry’s “Top of the Bench” competition.  The team came through a tough qualifier held at the University of St Andrews against another 11 schools from Fife, Dundee and Angus.

The team had six tasks to complete with points being awarded for each activity.  The tasks included problem solving, practical and knowledge questions.

A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who supported the team – it was a great experience for all the pupils.

‘Good luck’ to the team, who will include James Duncan (S3) and Kimberley Dow (S3), for next Tuesday’s final at St Andrews University.
