Grow Your Own Crystal Competition


The 2016 Grow Your Own Crystal Competition has been launched by iCRAG and SSPC – the Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre.

The aim of the competition is for an individual second-level student to grow a single crystal. Crystals will be judged by a panel of experts from iCRAG and SSPC.

You can enter your crystal by tweeting us a picture using #sspc_crystals. More information on how to enter and what crystals to grow can be found at the SSPC website.
