Chemical Reactions at Bohally Intermediate School

A number of Bohally students used their ‘chemical reactions’ topic in Term 3 to explore sustainability issues.

They connected their developing knowledge of chemical compounds and how they interact, with global and local issues in the real world.

Students worked on a range of topics that included the chemicals used in salmon farming, the hidden dangers of cosmetics, what microbeads are made of, oil pollution, nuclear energy, and recycling.  They were encouraged to apply their new knowledge to think about solutions that might help with these issues.
