Dukie Chemists Bring Home Awards at RSC Chemistry Olympiad

Annabelle and Ruben were awarded with Bronze and Gold awards respectively at the competition set up by the Royal Society of Chemistry. 

Back in January, Annabelle and Ruben took part in the RSC Chemistry Olympiad.  This is a competition designed to challenge and inspire, the students in secondary education across the British Isles. The enriching experience is a unique opportunity for students to push themselves further and excel in the chemistry field.

We are very proud of both students; Ruben achieved a Gold Award which means he was in the top 8% of the 9,182 students who took part. Annabelle received a Bronze Award and was only a mark away from the Silver. Only high achieving students can enter the competition so their achievement really does demonstrate just how amazing their performance was.  Congratulations to both of them.
