The Puget Sound section of ACS is pleased to announce that we will be participating again this next year in the International Chemistry Olympiad competition.
The primary goals of this program are to stimulate interest and achievement in chemistry among high school students throughout the United States and to provide recognition of outstanding young chemistry students, teachers, and schools.
Students competing in the USNCO are eligible to be selected as members of the United States team for the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO). For the past thirty three years, the United States has sent a team of four students to compete with nations around the world at the IChO. The students participate in both theoretical and laboratory examinations over several days. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded to the best performers, and the IChO provides students the opportunity to interact with their peers from other countries. This year the international event will be held in Nakhom Pathon, Thailand, July 6-15, 2017.
It is the responsibility of our section to nominate students from this area to take the USNCO national examination. In order to identify these students, we have decided to conduct a preliminary screening of students through Local Exams during March of 2017. The national exam involves three parts administered to more than 1,000 students. Students can use past exams available at www.acs.org/olympiad to prepare.
Any interested students (and teachers) are encouraged to get in touch with our committee members for more information about our local event. No registration forms are required; rules and general information are available in the website below. Please contact Clarita Bhat (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) for more details. Let us make this the year that one of ours goes to the International competition!! Our great committee will be communicating with all interested very soon.
