Complicated Chemistry in Year 9

Year 9 have had a fun last Chemistry lesson of the summer term. They have been studying the structure and properties of giant covalent structures. Having made detailed posters of the bonding and properties of these structures they set about trying to build 3D models. Diamond and graphene were popular choices. The pupils made a fantastic effort as it proved to be difficult finding the accurate angles to place the toothpick ‘bonds’.
