Chemistry Olympiad


The U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad and the International Chemistry Olympiad are multi-tiered competitions that bring together the world’s most talented high school students to test their knowledge and skills in chemistry. Nations around the world conduct examinations to nominate the most high-performing students for the International Chemistry Olympiad.   Each year, four students are chosen to represent the U.S. team at the International Chemistry Olympiad competition, which is hosted by a different country each year.
