Programme Structure (Morning)
Each team participates in two challenges – The Salters Challenge and The University Challenge.  In The Salters Challenge, teams take on the role of forensic scientists.  Teams are asked to perform a series of chemistry experiments which involves the analysis of evidence taken from a murder scene and from potential suspects involved in the crime.  The aims of the experiments are to show how chemistry can be used in a practical way to find out how the murder was committed and who committed the murder. In the University Challenge, the students get to use modern Datalogging techniques to solve a problem. Prizes are also given to the top three teams from each challenge.

Programme Structure (Afternoon)
The live Chemistry Magic show is a one hour fun-filled spectacular series of experiments during which Declan Kennedy and his team of technicians show how enjoyable chemistry can be.
