On Wednesday 13th of November a group of twenty-five Year 11 students from WCB accompanied by Dr Wardlow and Miss Campbell, attended the 2013 Chemistry at Work Exhibition in the Whitla Hall at Queens University Belfast.

The exhibition provided students with the opportunity to meet representatives from local chemical- based companies and institutions, who presented inspirational demonstrations of their use of chemistry at work. Amongst the exhibitors were Randox, BOC, NI Forensic, Norbrook, Loughry College and Bombardier and students were encouraged to participate in a range of interactive displays and activities.

It is hoped that this experience will stimulate further interest in chemistry amongst the students, particularly in terms of future subject choices and chemistry related careers.
