Chemistry Olympiad
2014

    This year we almost made it!  David Wang, a junior at Monte Vista High School in Cupertino represented our section at the study camp. He did not make the “traveling” team, but was the “first runner up.” We have high hopes for him in 2015!  Additionally we had another student qualify for the study camp, but he turned it down so he could attend a summer program at Stanford.  

    Overall the section had 24 schools out of over 100 high schools participate in the local section exam.  We had 17 students sit for the national exam. The CA section hosted our students for the national exam at Las Positas College in Livermore.
   
    For the first time in the 10+ years that I have been chairing our section’s Olympiad, we had 2 students score perfect papers on the regional exam.  The students are getting smarter! As we do every year, we invited the teachers to our summer wine tasting and awards picnic to show our appreciation for their support and hard work.
