Chemistry 3.1 investigations

Chemistry at the University of Canterbury makes the laboratories available to New Zealand schools for students to undertake their Chemistry 3.1 investigations. The University will provide staff and graduate students to assist your students along with the glassware, equipment and most of the chemicals that you will need. Solutions of chemicals can be provided as long as the dilutions and quantities are requested five working days in advance.

We prefer students to do assessments which have been tested and proved, linked below. They have been developed with the Canterbury Science Teachers Association and are intended for use by students carrying out the NCEA Chemistry 3.1: Extended practical investigation into variations in the amount of a substance. A student may be permitted to take on an alternative investigation, but the written protocol must be submitted three full weeks in advance for safety reasons.
