Chemistry Olympiad

The SVS will be participating in the U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad (USNCO). The primary goals of this program are to stimulate interest and achievement in chemistry among high school students throughout the United States and to provide recognition of outstanding young chemistry students, teachers, and schools. Students competing in the US-NCO are eligible to be selected as members of the United States team for the International Chemistry Olympiad (ICO).

If you have a truly outstanding chemistry student please submit his/her name to our screening committee in March of the current academic year. The USNOC exam is given at a local University in April.
