RSC Schools Analyst Competition, Midlands Region

17 January 2017 13:30-17:00, Nottingham, United Kingdom

The Schools Analyst Competition is a national competition run by the RSC’s Analytical Division for first year Sixth Form or equivalent.  The competition has two stages: regional heats and a national final, where up to 16 regional heat winners compete for the Challenge Shield and significant cash prizes for themselves and their schools.
A regional heat for this competition will be held at the School of Chemistry, the University of Nottingham, on Tuesday 17th January 2017. This will run from 1:30pm-5pm, where teams of 3 students will be required to undertake some practical analytical exercises based on problems relevant to industrial or social needs.  Most of the tasks will be linked to the A-level curriculum, using equipment and concepts familiar to the students such as titrations. Some tasks will use techniques and equipment not available in most schools, such as spectroscopy.  It is designed to be both fun and educational.

Each team comprises three students (if the team is not accompanied by a teacher/ technician then emergency contact details must be provided).
Please note we can accommodate 16 teams and places are allocated on a first-come-first served basis. Schools can register more than one team, but are limited to registering a maximum of 3 teams.
