Engaging, practical-based classes form the core of the Science curriculum at Padua College.  This Masterclass offers an extension of the core applications provided by Padua’s Science Department.

In this introduction to Chemistry, students will learn practical skills and relevant theories based on chromatography, reaction rates and metallic bonding.  The Masterclass will develop student understanding of the chemistry concepts involved whilst furthering their practical skills.  By the end of this course, students will have enhanced their chemical analysis skills.
