A Level Science News

Posted on: 30/11/2020

A level chemistry students were 'wowed' today by a spectacular demonstration of reversible reactions in transition metal complexes. 

Copper can exist in many forms, each of them a ​different colour, and students could track the position of the equilibrium by observing the colour change.

Meanwhile in A level biology, students observed how fussy (or not) woodlice are by constructing 'choice chambers' and counting the numbers of woodlice in each of the different conditions, such as light or dark, wet or dry.

Collecting and interpreting our own data is the most important aspect of an investigation so our sixth formers are gaining first-hand experience of the working life of a scientist!
