The 2016 National Challenge Celebrated “Around the World of Chemistry!”

At the 2016 National Challenge we explored the ways that chemistry is helping us solve global challenges and how chemistry binds us together as global citizens. We highlighted chemists and companies worldwide who are using chemistry in unique ways to advance human potential.

We also celebrated the outstanding achievements of 39 bright middle school students as they showed off their knowledge of chemistry under the bright lights of the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, PA!
