Undergraduate Web Projects 2003

These projects were all done by Level II Chemistry students in the 3 week period between taking their final exams and receiving their results, June 2003. They were written with minimal formal instructions - the students were just told to 'teach themselves how to write a web page, and write something interesting on a chemical or scientific theme'. The best (four) sites will be entered for the Royal Society of Chemistry ExemplarChem National Competition. The sites were judged on (i) Quality and quantity of scientific content, (ii) Design, and (iii) Internet awareness.

Note: These projects work best with Internet Explorer in Windows, since they were mostly written with MS Frontpage. If you use Netscape you may sometimes find a few strange formatting errors, or even crashes. Also, you may need the Chime plug-in to see the 3D molecular structures present on many of the pages. Some of the pages also require the Flash and Shockwave plug-ins.

The overall winner is:

Samantha Shanley     Carbon Allotropes    Wins the first prize (50)

These top 4 will also be invited to attend the award ceremony (free of charge) at the RSC headquarters in London in October 2003.

Samantha ShanleyCarbon Allotropes
Yin Nah TeoThe Chemistry of Fragrances
Christina BaeKorean Fermented Food
Joseph CookFundamentals of Crystallography

There may be 5 or 6 'exhibit-only' entries allowed to go the Prize-giving ceremony in London too, but these will be announced nearer the time...
