Titration Teacher Challenge 2021

Can you titrate as well as your students? Here’s your chance to find out!

The RACI invites all Chemistry educators, Chemistry teachers and school/university laboratory technicians to take part in the Titration Teacher Challenge. This is an opportunity to encourage and mentor less experienced / new graduate Chemistry teachers and laboratory technicians at your institution to develop their Titration skills in their own laboratory environment.

Registrations for the Challenge have now closed.  Entries need to submitted by 3pm Friday 24 September 2021.
