Chemistry Olympiad

Organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the well-recognised annual event provides an opportunity to stretch and challenge the scientific minds of post-16 students, and brings together pupils from across the Nation. The competition is a challenging process, involving a two hour written test of chemical knowledge. The questions are based on real-world chemistry and stimulate much debate, raising awareness of what chemistry is all about. Congratulations to the 6 St Brendan’s students who achieved Bronze Awards!
