Description

The NWS Schools Titration Competition is a quantitative analytical competition open to NSW students currently enrolled in Senior Chemistry studying towards the Higher School Certificate. The competition operates at a number of school and university venues throughout the State. Students compete in teams of three and, in ninety minutes, most complete a set of acid-base titrations to determine the unknown concentration of a weak acid. The team's score will depend on the accuracy of the work of its members. The best score wins medals for the team. They may then be invited to participate in the National Competition later in the year.

Some competition venues also have associated lectures that students can attend.
