- What have you learnt about chemical production?
I have learnt that chemical production is not an easy task as it often requires countless hours of sampling, analysing and fine tuning to ensure that the final product is acceptable. Moreover, chemical production is not simply a single task as it involves many processes and machinery working together to finish the task.
Another factor that cannot be neglected is time. Learning to work under pressure is essential in chemical production.
- What have you recognised the full of sampling and analysis?
A fundamental component of sampling and analysis is collaborative work. For example, to ensure stable progress and high efficiency, one member has to obtain a sample while another member analyses an existing sample to ensure constant progress.
Sampling and analysis also requires much precision and care to ensure that the results are both reliable and accurate. For example, if equipment such as the string is not cleaned well, the contamination might cause ‘strange’ results.
- What have you learnt about Science and Engineering?
In Science and Engineering, all the fields are interconnected. Thus, one who is studying in one field is able to collaborate with person in another field on a huge project and accomplish greater feats.
- What have you learnt about yourself?
I learned I might be more interested in Chemistry than I had initially thought after the activities and that passion and interest is a major driving force of accomplishments.
