Department of Chemistry University of Oxford

Students took part in the week long summer school which involved lectures, tutorials and practical laboratory workshops throughout the day and fun activities during the evenings including a formal dinner, sports day in the University Parks and a bop with some (rather questionable) fancy dress!

Students taking part in the Chill Out Challenge. A look into exothermic reactions with a competition as to who can get a temperature drop from a reaction closest to 8.2 degrees! This was taken during the final practical workshop in the Dyson Perrins Teaching Laboratory.
