Visit of students of Madinat Sultan Qaboos Private School to Department of Chemistry

Students experience about the visit:

Today’s trip was so special. The first trip that I found myself learning many essentials in life and in Science. The teachers with us were so good too. It was one of the best. Moreover, I learned about university’s environment. Thank you – Ameer Mahmood.

This world abounds with fun activities and Chemistry is above them all. The trip was splendiferous. I enjoyed myself and learned a lot from this journey – AlKhalil Said.

The trip was amazing because we had fun while learning Chemistry and that makes us understand better in the subject – Hassan Ali.

The trip offered me a glimpse into a possible future of mine. I learned a lot, in both, pure and applied Chemistry. It was a nurturing experience, which greatly enhanced my grasp of the year’s materials – Hussain Ali.

A new experience, a new place to visit, new information added to my knowledge. Blessed to visit such a place and this information will help us in our future – Redha Mustafa.

We learned too many things in the trip. The trip benefited us about the pH balance and many other experiments like the dry ice that is produced under high pressure and changes from solid to gas with no liquid statement made in between – Salim Saif.

The trip was very informative with the main portion of it focusing on pH. Many live practical were performed most of which were simple but delved deep into theoretical aspect of many Chemistry portions – Saud Bader.

I enjoyed the different experiments. The trip was very productive from both sides. We got an idea about our next lab manual experiment – Abdulaziz Hamid.

I like it thanks MsNazem – Abdullah Essam.

It was an awesome experience. We have to visit an institution that many (or some) of us wish to go to in the future. The trip itself was fruitful and fun, we learned various things related to our studies and obtained experience on experiments we may need to carry out in the near future – Alaa Kadhim.

I truly enjoyed learning new things about Chemistry – Ali Tawfiq.

It was an amazing trip to SQU we learned many new things about Chemistry and we saw new reactions and I loved it – Ali Hussain.

The trip was astounding and very useful. We learnt a lot about thee Chemistry section and SQU in general. The reactions we did were very useful to us, as we will do most of them during the semester. I thank teacher Nazim and Teacher Anaam for this amazing trip – Ammar Hassan.

The trip was extremely fun, amazing and useful. The experiments carried on were attractive. I learned many new things about Chemistry and Science. I have noticed that Chemistry is fun by learning it practically in labs. Special thanks to our teachers – Malik Sulaiman.

The trip was amazing. I learned many things in it like the nitration reaction and the pH reactions. It was fun and I really appreciate this from Miss Nazim – Musaab Mohammed.

It was a great trip. I thank the school for giving us the opportunity to go to the university. We learned many new things, which will benefit us in the future (Special thanks to Teacher Nazim and Teacher Anaam – Hadi Haider.

The trip was amazing, astonishing and incredible. I understood many new things, especially about acid, bases and other compounds. Enjoyed – Yaseen Murtadha.
