Knox hosts NSW Titration Competition

04-Jul-2012

Knox Grammar recently hosted 51 students from three Sydney schools, James Ruse, Monte Sant’ Angelo and St Pius, for the NSW Titration Competition.

In the chemistry competition, teams compete in groups of three to complete a set of acid-base titrations to determine the unknown concentration of a weak acid within 90 minutes. The team's score depends on the accuracy of the work of its members. More than 1,600 students around the state participated in the competition.

Of the 17 teams which competed at Knox, our teams finished third, sixth, seventh, eight, thirteenth, fifteenth and sixteenth.  A James Ruse team came first and a St Pius team came second.

The members of the third place winning Knox team were Alex Kitcher, Charlie Hunter and Aamir Alikhan.
