Otago University Chemistry Quiz

Otago University Chemistry Quiz

6 scholarship chemistry students travelled to Dunedin for sessions at the Chemistry Department Otago University along with taking part in the annual Otago University Chemistry Quiz.

The precision needed creating silver nanoparticles solutions in a rainbow of different colours in the morning session was followed by the challenge of making liquid crystals.  Everyone chose their own temperature range and the session concluded with us all taking home a beautiful and colourful vial of temperature sensitive liquid crystals. 

Thanks to Dave Warren and Brie Nally for taking joy in guiding us all through these procedures, and further adding to the wonder of Chemistry 

 

The day concluded with Matt Fraser, Ella Gilroy and Jess Quinn just being beaten and coming 2nd in the 15th annual Otago Chemistry Department quiz
