Chemistry Cluedo Workshop

Our Year 13 Chemistry students visited the incredible new Innovation Centre at Massey University in Albany to participate in their Chemical Cluedo workshop on the 7th, 12th and 13th of June. The workshops were run by Dr Debbie Jordan, Senior tutor in Chemistry and co-chair of the SNCS outreach committee at Massey University, alongside a team of incredible PhD and Honours students who volunteered their time to run a morning jam-packed with chemistry fun and learning.

During this hands-on workshop, the students collected samples to gather data from spectrometers in action and interpreted the spectra of organic substances to solve the case of the “Murder of Professor White,” which was presented in the narrative of a story. The students were well prepared for these tasks and solved the murder very efficiently. The workshops were followed up by guided tours around the Innovation Centre and campus.
