Perfect Score at Australian Titration Competition

23-Nov-2018

Tyndale Student achieves a Perfect Score at the Australian Titration Competition
 
On Saturday, 8  September a team of three Year 11 Chemistry students (Sharon Rose B, Katarina H and Jessica M) competed in the world’s largest practical Chemistry competition; the National Finals of the Australian Titration Competition at the University of NSW. Students are marked on their accuracy in performing titrations (reactions involving acids, bases, colour changes, specialised equipment and ultra-accurate techniques). Smaller scores, being closest to the correct results, are best.
 
Tyndale’s team was invited to these finals after performing very well in the earlier state level competition. After 3 hours of careful work in the university chemistry labs and a long and tension-filled awards presentation (we had to leave the building part way through due to a fire alarm!) our girls scored a 4th place as a team! Each of our girls received a gold medal for their excellent individual scores. Jessica M was awarded a special prize for the best individual performance, being the only student to achieve a perfect score of zero!
 
These are amazing results and we praise God for the opportunity to take part in this competition and the skills and determination demonstrated by these talented young women. This result was made possible by many hours of practice during Interest Group time, study periods and after school. Thanks also for the help and support of Mrs Shakti Maforimbo, Mrs Rachel Steer and Mr David Corias who trained, prepared chemicals and equipment, and inspired the team.
 
We’ll be back again next year with more teams to take on this challenging competition. Stay tuned for your opportunity to be involved in the future.
