In its 10th year, the Ateneo Chemistry Olympiad is going online! The event aims to test the participants’ theoretical knowledge of chemistry as well as the ability to apply these concepts in ways which are easily digestible for the masses. The written exam will cover a vast range of chemistry topics. The video presentation will require participants to effectively communicate the scientific concepts behind a given prompt. Participants will attend a maximum of four electives to hone in on science as a component of nation-building. These electives will discuss chemistry in the field of medicine, climate change, etc. 


Moreover, a mentorship program spearheaded by BS Chemistry students of the Ateneo De Manila University will be open to participants who register before March 6. Held on March 13 and 20, this will serve as preparation for the olympiad. An overview of the event and tips for the competition proper among others will be discussed over the two-day program.
