Success in the RACI Victorian Titration Competition

15th Aug 2017

At the end of Term 2, five teams of three Year 12 students competed in a competition based on the practical skill of Chemistry titration in which the concentration of an unknown vinegar solution was determined by reaction with sodium hydroxide solution. The results for the three team members were combined and they were placed according to their accuracy when compared to the actual concentration.

We had mixed success, but with 350 teams competing across Victoria, we were delighted to have three teams placed in the top 100 and one team in the top 10.

Results were as follows:

Brittany Read, Karly Rosenbrock and Sabrina Wang – 9th

Cassie Dods, Ben Schneider and Abbie Szabo– 79th

Eliza Mignot, Emily McLean and Eliza Harvey – 84th  

Bryce Crockford, Robyn Dolphin and Edward – 250th

Alison Yang, Ada and Josephine – 252nd

The top 35 teams are invited to enter the National competition, which occurs in September, so Brittany, Karly and Sabrina will be competing for National glory!
