Thank you for registering your team(s) for the 2022-2023 You Be The Chemist Challenge®! Registration for the 2022-2023 Challenge cycle will open October 3 and close December 30.

The Challenge can be incorporated into the classroom as an asynchronous learning tool. Student participation in the Challenge enhances student learning through participation in online study modules that coincide with CEF’s Challenge study materials, which can be found here

The Challenge offers two participation tracks this year: in-person and virtual.

  • In-Person: Teams participating in-person must first take the Qualifier to advance to the in-person Regional Challenge. Please see the Challenge Tracks for more information.
  • Both Tracks: Teams compete in the in-person or virtual Regional Challenge answering timed multiple-choice and short-answer questions. Teams will also create a video exploring chemistry concepts in this year’s theme. Regional Challenge and video scores are weighted to determine state winners and national finalists! Teams must be composed of 3-4 students.
