Carey ranked as top WA school in Chemistry competition
It is our pleasure to announce that the Carey Baptist College Year 12 Chemistry students of 2017 have not only won 1st and 7th place in the State Titration stakes, but also 3rd and 6th place at the National Titration Stakes.
After winning the State Titration Stakes and ranking number 1 in WA, Carey’s top 2 teams competed in the National Titration Stakes at Murdoch University. These students trained for several weeks in the lead up to the competition and had just 3 hours to complete the task on the day.
Titration requires the use of chemistry and mathematics in this laboratory method of quantitative chemical analysis that is used to determine the unknown concentration of an identified analyte.
Ken Marbeck, the Science Laboratory Manager worked alongside the students as they trained throughout the year. “In my 10 odd years training students in Carey, these two teams have achieved the most accurate results in the National Titration Stakes. I am so proud of them.”
Congratulations to all of the students who competed in the trials, including Stephie Uzice, Safiyyah Moolla, Jordan Neil, Reagan Nicholas, Chyrmin Leong, Jamin Hunter, Joshua Stevens, Dylan Keppler, and Robert Hutchinson. Special thanks also go out to the Royal Australian Chemistry Institute, Mr Ken Marbeck and Mrs Ann Moseley.
