2012 UK Chemistry Olympiad
The 44th International Olympiad competition 2012 ended in great success for the UK team.
The team flew out to Washington, USA in July to compete against 71 other countries as their chemical knowledge and skills were put to the test. These young scientists sat a five-hour practical and three-hour theoretical exam, and their hard work was certainly evident by the excellent results.
- Callum Bungey from Westminster School was awarded a Silver medal
- Thomas Spence from Winchester College was also awarded a Silver medal
- Walter Kähm from Cambridge Centre for Sixth Form Students won a Bronze medal
- Ella Mi from The King's School Peterborough was also awarded a Bronze medal
