Titration Teacher Challenge


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.

How the Challenge works

 
  • Register for the Challenge here. Cost $11 (incl. GST). 
  • We will send you two sample tubes to titrate.
  • Chemistry educators, teachers and laboratory technicians will participate as individuals rather than in teams.
  • The analysis should be completed within 3 hours. You complete the analysis in your own time at your place of employment.
  • Submit your Entry by 22 September 2022. Please email your answer to the Titration Teacher Challenge Coordinator - Elaine Bergmann FRACI CChem
  • Results for the best entrants will be announced on the RACI website (with the entrants' permission)
  • Plaques and Certificates will be awarded as shown below.

 

Awards and Recognition

  • All entries will receive a Certificate of Participation
  • Entries obtaining a result of Excellent Standard will receive a certificate recognising their achievement.
  • A plaque will be awarded to each of the top 10% of participants, providing that each of these has submitted a result of Excellent Standard (see Section 6 of the Rules).
