"Our grant money was used to buy several molymod molecular modelling kits. These kits were used extensively this year in both the Y12 and Y13 chemistry classes in the first term. These allowed students to have a much more hands on approach to learning VSPER theory which I believe has given them a much more fundamental understanding of this concept rather than rote learning how to answer questions about molecular geometry. Thanks once again for the grant, it is much appreciated by staff and students alike"
"The funding we got from your trust was very helpful as it allowed us to purchase equipment that we wouldn’t normally fit into our budget. The distillation sets we purchased will be used this year to develop understanding in the process of fermentation and distillation for our level 1 chemistry classes. They can also be utilised in 12 and 13 chemistry lessons. Our current sets were very old and had pieces missing, so we were able to top up the number of sets we have to allow for 7 sets per class".
"In order for students to be able to carry out the new titration standard (Chem 2.1) - make standard solutions, carry out titration - we needed more equipment. The grant enabled us to purchase more volumetric flasks, pipettes and burettes to support our students to have hands on practical experiences in chemistry - which is often the reason students choose it. It meant that students could individually practice and improve their titration skills".
