The girls were set a range of challenges including identifying the culprit in a forensic investigation by testing chemicals found at the scene of the crime.
Later in the day they made a polymer bouncy ball that would bounce the highest and also attended a lecture on poisons. Science teacher Bill Woodburn said ‘I am very proud of all our girls who have worked so hard and beat some very stiff competition to win first place. This is a wonderful achievement’.
Sarah and Victoria said ‘It was a really enjoyable day; we learnt a lot and had the chance to get very messy carrying out the experiments which we liked’.
