Student Scientists Participate in the Chemistry Olympiad

Students from our chemistry classes participated in the demanding Chemistry Olympiad at Quinnipiac University. Sponsored by the American Chemical Society, this program is a chemistry competition for high school students. The purpose of the competition is to stimulate young people to achieve excellence in chemistry. The American Chemical Society has sponsored the program since 1984.

"This has been the second year our students have participated since I arrived in 2014," said science teacher, Nicholas Lauzon. "They had a great time last year. They really enjoyed the experience and the challenge."

Our students participated in the regional exam portion of the Olympiad. The top ten students will go on to take the national exam. From there, the top students will continue on to a boot camp in Colorado over the summer. If they do well there, they will participate in the worldwide exam in Paris.
