Abbey College Cambridge Cambridge News: Chemistry Challenge Roentgenium Award Winner Augustin

Lower Sixth Abbey College Cambridge student Agustin Lorusso Notaro Francesco from Uruguay has achieved the Roentgenium award in this year’s Cambridge Chemistry Challenge.

To receive the Roentgenium, Agustin placed in the top 0.6% of more than 9,000 students who entered the competition this year. He has now been invited to participate in a residential chemistry camp this August based at St Catherines College and the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge.

Agustin’s success marks the 3rd time in the last four years that an Abbey College Cambridge student has achieved the challenge’s prestigious Roentgenium award. Previous winners were Iris Wang (China) in 2016 and Juan Fernandez Pottecher (Spain) in 2018. Iris is now studying Chemical Engineering at the University of Cambridge, and Juan has an offer to Study Natural Sciences at Cambridge in 2019.
