Exeter chemistry students in national competition final
In December Tim Hele, Philip James and Charles Rowe (all 3rd year chemists at Exeter) entered the BP fieldtrip, a competition to design a method of carbon sequestration from gas-fired power stations. The prize is a paid internship to see BP’s operations in Scotland, the North Sea, and Norway.
In January they were informed that their initial submission was one of 15 (out of 52) successful in progressing to the semi-final, which was held in London last Friday. This week they heard that they have been one of five teams successful in progressing to the final, to be held in April in the Natural History Museum in London.
Congratulations to them, and we wish them the best of luck in the final!
