You be the Scientist


The you be the scientist challenge is an interactive academic contest that encourages students in grades 5-12 to explore science concepts and their real-world applications. The challenge provides a unique opportunity for a variety of individuals and organizations- Including schools, members of the chemical industry, educators and other community partners- to come together and show their support for STEM education.

How Does the challenge work ?

The challenge is an academic competition that starts at the school level and continues with Local, state and Nation Challenge competitions. We relies on volunteers, our challenge organizers, to coordinate school participation and plan the Local and State challenge competitions.

The challenge begins with students completing the challenge Qualifier, a short multiple choice test provided by us and administered by educators and/or Organizers. Based on student participation in a Local Challenge site and/or state, a select number of students will advance to the next level of competition.

Local and state challenge competitions operate in a quiz bowl format with several rounds of multiple choice questions. Students participate individually in the challenge competitions. The students who score the highest will move on to the next level of competition ( as noted in the chart above) with the top participant from each state advancing to the National Challenges.

Chemzone also provides free study materials to help students prepare for the challenge.
