Washington-Idaho Border Section

Chemistry Olympiad is Coming to Idaho!

The Department of Chemistry at the University of Idaho in conjunction with the Washington-Idaho border ACS section is excited to say that we will be hosting our inaugural sectional competition of the U.S. National Chemical Olympiad on March 25, 2017 here at Renfrew Hall on our Moscow, ID campus.  The event is designed to excite and engage area high school students to compete against each other in written and laboratory events. We invite all high school chemistry students to come and enjoy the all-day festivities. Each student will take a written test, and then student teams will compete in titration, density, and/or qualitative analysis competitions.  Every student will receive free lunch and a T-shirt.  Awards will also be given out to best teams and individual test takers.  The official invitation letter is linked below.

For more information on the event email Dr. Kristopher V. Waynant: kwaynant@uidaho.edu
