The 2012 International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) Comes to Washington, D.C.

The American Chemical Society will host the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) from 21–30 July 2012. IChO provides chemistry students the opportunity to compete at the highest levels and establish networks that go beyond cultures and borders. As part of its ongoing commitment to science, technology, engineering and math education, The Dow Chemical Company is investing $2.5 million to bring the IChO to the USA for the first time since 1992.

The International Chemistry Olympiad is an annual competition for the world’s most talented chemistry students at the secondary school level. Nations around the world send a team of four students, who are tested on their chemistry knowledge and skills in a five-hour laboratory practical and five-hour written theoretical examination. Through a special donation, IUPAC offers support for the participation of countries with limited financial resources. The priorities for the use of this support are: bringing additional students if there are less than four in the team, bringing an additional mentor if there are less than two, or support to reduce the participation fee of a country.
