Over the past few weeks, Year 12 chemistry students have been working on a chemical engineering project, with the aim of finding out about certain principles and their application in industry. We completed two experiments in class, one on fluid flow and another on heat transfer. We collected results, wrote a report and then analysed our findings. The project culminated on 30 June, when the chemistry students attended an informative talk from chemical engineers Ben Salisbury and Mwansa Chipasha, from Horizon Nuclear Power, in the Lecture Theatre. Different groups of students presented their finding to the engineers, and were questioned on the theory behind the experiments. In the end, the winning group was James Phelps, Ben Mason, Joseph Coldrick and Sophie Howells closely followed by Francesca Bilton, Abby Kemp and Alice Stuart-Brown. It has been a really interesting project to do, and the chemistry students have learnt lots about the real world applications of chemistry.

The winners received a £10 gift voucher and stationery goodie bag.

All participants received a small stationary gift donated by Horizon Nuclear Power and the Institution of Chemical Engineers IChemE.

Dr Harris says “Another successful end of year project. It is a real pleasure to see the commitment and determination shown by our students.”
