Gosford High School has placed eight in the RACI NSW Titration Competition.
Hosted by the University of NSW on September 13, the competition is designed for students who enjoy studying chemistry to be able to gain hands on practical experience by competing in a number of titration exercises.
Each team was tasked with standardising a sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution against a supplied acid solution or oxalic acid and then had to use an alkali solution to determine three weak acid solutions with the sodium hydroxide solution, with teams judged on their proficiency.
Benjamin Anthonisz, Rio Eden and Connor Worth represented Gosford High School with Worth picking up an individual gold medal for his efforts during the competition.
Principal, Michael Smith, said the entire Science faculty was very proud of the boys and thrilled with their top 10 result.
