Former Beaconhills student and Chemistry PhD candidate Lauren Blakeley (Class of 2012) dropped in to the College recently with a special gift for our science labs.

In case you didn’t know, 2019 is the Year of the Periodic Table and Lauren came armed with a complete set of elements to present to the school.

She has helped Professor Stuart Battern from Monash University to assemble 600 sets to distribute to high schools across the nation. Each set has an authentic sample of each known element (within safety boundaries).

Lauren also took time out to give an interesting presentation on her work to senior students and offer some wise words of advice to those thinking of a career in chemistry.
