Be part of the You Be The Chemist Challenge to celebrate chemistry in everyday learning and life.

Volunteer: The Challenge relies on a network of volunteers – our amazing Challenge Organizers – to coordinate participation and plan the Local and State Challenge competitions.

Participate as a Student: Students in grades 5 through 8 are welcome to participate, were sites are available.

Involve your Students (for Educators and Families): Engage and enroll your students or your child to participate in the Challenge.

Sponsor: Provide financial support for the Challenge experience to students and educators in your community. Thank you!
