Today was West Derby School‘s turn to receive our Bonding Workshop event …. and what a good morning we had!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we started a bit late – so had to work super-quick to get through all the activites we had planned for an hour in 45 mins! Phew!

However, Year 10 were fantastic – they worked hard and were soon building molymod models of simple covalent molecules including Alkanes and Alkenes. Laura, Victoria and Menna were busy helping the boys, as were Dr Palin and the Head of Science! We were very impressed with the boys ability!

We were soon moving onto the reactions of Hydrocarbons; combustion using Methane bubbles and identification of alkenes using bromine water.

We are back at West Derby School tomorrow – but will be seeing Year 9 instead!
