AP Chemistry Students Publish Research Findings

Over 100 chem­istry stu­dents from through­out the Delaware Valley gath­ered at Temple University to share the results of their research at a “poster ses­sion.” The researchers ranged from high school stu­dents through recent Ph.D. grad­u­ates. The Bristol High School AP class won the third-place prize in the high school lev­el of the com­pe­ti­tion. Our stu­dents devel­oped a new pro­ce­dure to mea­sure the iron(III) con­cen­tra­tion in nat­ur­al water using UV/Vis spec­troscopy. The stu­dents are now pub­lished authors on this topic.
