On Friday 31st Oct the Chemistry Department took all S3 Chemistry pupils to the Midmills Campus of The UHI for the “Chemistry in the Workplace” event. 48 pupils attended the which was hosted by The UHI, SEPA, The RSC, and Lifescan. Our pupils had the opportunity to work in a lab environment alongside Chemists from industrial backgrounds. They undertook two workshops; the first looking at how Chemistry helps when dealing with an Industrial spill, the second looking at the Chemistry of diabetes and it’s detection. These new topic area are part of the new Curriculum for Excellence Broad General Education. The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all and the pupils conducted themselves in an exemplary manner.
