Registration to compete in the 2022-2023 You Be The Chemist Challenge cycle will open in October, and watch our new video on the right to see why past Challenge participants found it such a valuable and enriching experience!

For the 2022 Challenge, nine thousand students from 300 schools competed in the 2022 Regional You Be The Chemist Challenge®. The top five teams of students from Illinois, Michigan, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Washington competed for scholarships at the National You Be The Chemist Challenge® on June 6 at The Westin Houston, Memorial City in Houston, Texas.

During the National Challenge, each team participated in a Q&A session on stage with a panel of judges. The questions encompassed the research the students performed in the making of their 3-5-minute videos on states of matter in space.

Chemistry Enthusiasts from Massachusetts came in first place, Princeton Charter School from New Jersey won second place, and Jefferson Middle
School from Michigan won third. Please see the press release for more details.
