Bill Bryson Award

21 July 2014

Many congratulations to Lower Sixth student Elisabeth Kitsz who has won the runner-up prize in the 2014 Bill Bryson Award.

The theme of this year's award was 'Science in Art'. For her entry to the competition Elisabeth combined her artistic skills and chemistry knowledge to make her own paint pigments with which she then painted a beautiful piece entitled 'Test tubes of colour'. Her entry for the award detailed how she made the pigments.

'Test tubes of colour' is currently being exhibited as part of the Royal Society of Chemistry exhibition, 'Art in Chemistry in Art', at Burlington House, Piccadilly.
