RACI Crystal Growing Competition

For the past six weeks, Ms Greenwood and a group of Year 10 Chemistry students have been growing crystals to enter in the 2016 RACI Crystal Growing Competition. Josiah Cheng, Serena Chern, Zhengkai Fang, Min Hoo, Shambhavi Mishra, and Suraj Nijjar have dedicated their Tuesday lunchtimes to successfully growing crystals of aluminium potassium sulphate dodecahydrate. At the end of Term 2, crystals will be submitted to the Queensland regional competition, where the students’ crystals will be judged according to criteria such as size, shape, and clarity. We wish these students the best of luck and congratulate them on their efforts!
