Can You Compete With A Chemistry Olympian?
A lot of the world may be gearing up for the Summer Olympics in London. But this week in Maryland (just a relatively hop, skip, and jump away from C&EN headquarters) high school students from 72 nations are competing in the extremely challenging International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO). The students have been preparing for months for the event by studying a book of preparatory problems. See how challenging the questions are for yourself. Each day this week, we’ll post a new question from that book. Let us know how you do!
