Chemistry Competition Helps Students Reach Olympian Heights

Message

If you thought trying out for the Olympics seemed tough, just look at what high school students go through to compete in the International Chemistry Olympiad.

The competition starts with some 11,000 high school students from around the country, including 100 at the University of San Diego, who take an exam at the local level. Out of those, some 900 are chosen for a rigorous six-hour national exam that includes multiple choice, written questions and a laboratory assignment. From that, 20 students are invited to the U.S. National Chemistry Study Camp and then just four are chosen to represent the United States at the Chemistry Olympiad. (Full Story on Inside USD)
