You Be the Chemist Challenge


The Challenge is an academic competition for students in grades 5-8, where the excitement and value of chemistry takes center stage! By middle school, most U.S. students have not studied chemistry as its own subject. Participating in a Challenge offers a critical exposure to this content.

The Resource

The Challenge is an academic competition that starts at the school level and continues with Local, State, and National Challenge competitions. CEF relies on a network of volunteers, our Challenge Organizers, to coordinate participation and plan the Local and State Challenge competitions.
