Scientists off to Chemistry camp

Congratulations to Dunbar Sloane, Crystal Li and Alan Tian in Year 13 who have been selected from around 100 students to attend the final training camp of the NZ Chemistry OIympiad.

Thirty students from around the country attend the camp, which takes place in the Term 1 holidays. A practical exam and a theory exam then determine a final team of four students to represent NZ at the International Chemistry Olympiad. This year it will be held in Slovakia and Czech Republic.

It is the first time ACG Parnell College has had three students make it through to the final camp.

Chemistry teacher Amy McLennan said the students had dedicated significant time out of the classroom to prepare for the Olympiad.

“They are all very independent learners who are enthusiastic about their studies in Chemistry and enjoy being challenged,” she said.
