The Chemistry Olympiad is an annual, international competition of chemical knowledge designed to recognize outstanding chemistry students and foster cross-cultural experiences. The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Kennesaw State University (KSU) and the Georgia Local Section (GLS) of the American Chemical Society (ACS) are sponsoring the first-tier of the Chemistry Olympiad program, which is a local competition.
A qualifying exam will be given on Saturday, March 17th 2018 at KSU from 10:30 am until 12:30 pm. The 13 students who score the highest on the qualifying exam will be invited to take the national exam on Saturday, April 21st 2018 at Kennesaw State University. This national exam will consist of a written portion and a laboratory portion. The National Committee will then evaluate the national exam results to select the 20 members of the U.S. Chemistry Olympiad Team. These students get to participate in a two-week study camp, and the best four students will be selected for the US team. The international competition will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia and Prague, Czech Republic the week of July 19-29 2018.
