Toolooa Team Places 17th in National Final of Titration Competition
 
 
The Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) Australian National Chemical Analysis (Titration) Competition has been running since 1984. Acid-base titration is a method in chemistry that allows quantitative analysis of the concentration of an unknown acid or base solution. This technique is used for chemical analysis in nearly every working laboratory.
 
The competition has two stages – the first round involves Regional Competitions in each state. The teams that place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the Regional Competition are then invited to take part in the National Finals.
 
This year there were 147 teams who qualified for and competed in the National Final and two of those teams were from Toolooa State high School.
 
Congratulations to Toolooa Team 2 (consisting of Joshua Reilly, Elora Ghea and Sarah Crail) for placing 17th out of 147 teams in this challenging National Competition.
