Thank you for registering your school for the 2020-2021 You Be The Chemist Challenge®!
The Challenge can be incorporated into the classroom as an asynchronous learning tool for teachers in their classroom. Student participation in the Challenge enhances student learning during the virtual school day through participation in online study modules that coincide with CEF’s Challenge study materials, which may be used to supplement classroom learning towards meeting the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and creating videos as part of the Challenge that explore how science concepts relate to sustainability.
Teams will participate in a moderated livestream event to answer multiple choice and short-answer questions and hear from scientific professionals to expand their knowledge of chemistry. Student teams will also create a video exploring the intersection between the role of chemistry in their community and sustainability. Students must compete in teams of four (4).
Please note that the Virtual Academic Competition dates/time options are:
Saturday, February 27 – 1pm - 5pm EST (10am PST)
