Year 11 Chemistry Excursion

Year 11 Chemistry students visited the University of Melbourne in Parkville last week to conduct practical experiments analysing water samples from Moonee Ponds Creek.

The excursion introduced students to Unit 2 Chemistry and gave us a taste of what to expect during Semester 2.

We were also graciously allowed to use the university’s scientific equipment, including their High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and Spectroscopy machines, which enabled us to gain highly accurate results for our scientific experiments.

The demonstrators were intriguing, accommodating and inclusive throughout the event, sharing information about their career journeys. We are grateful for their teachings and advice, which will be valuable in our studies and decision-making after high school.

We extend our sincere thanks to the University of Melbourne School of Chemistry.
