Chemistry 2.1 and 3.1 Titration Investigations
The School of Physical and Chemical Sciences makes the laboratories available to New Zealand schools for students to undertake their Chemistry 2.1 and 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 Chemistry 3.1 standard. 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.

Chemistry 3.2 Spectroscopy
The School of Physical and Chemical Sciences runs an interactive spectroscopy presentation followed by a tour of our state-of-the-art instrument suite. To make full use of this workshop we recommend that your students have done at least some of the work for the Chemistry 3.2 standard, otherwise it would not be so effective.
