These science girls show their smarts

TITRATION competitions can be precarious where precision is paramount and accuracy is everything. Half a drop too little or too much can make or break a team's success.

Fortunately for three Girls Grammar students the balance was just right, and they recently took out silver at the National Titration Final held at CQ University.

The three students, Claire Orford, Michaela Newell and Aska Murayama, juggled commitments in touch football and “biology on the beach” to make the time to practice with burettes and pipettes.

They struck the right balance and a winning formula - a leading example of girls being great at science.
