Gold in Cambridge Chemistry Challenge 2014

Congratulations to 13 Year 12 students who won various awards in the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge 2014. The competition is supported by the Department of Chemistry, St Catharine’s College, University of Cambridge. The competition aims to stretch and challenge students interested in chemistry.
