A total of ten students from area school districts advanced to the state in the You Be the Chemist competition recently. Of these advancing, eight and the alternate are students from Rasco Middle School, Lake Jackson Intermediate, and Freeport Intermediate.

You Be The Chemist is a competition and program that celebrates and elevates the science  of chemistry to inspire ongoing study and careers.

The YBTC Challenge provides:

  • Exposure to chemistry concepts in grades 5-8 - earlier than most US Students even begin studying chemistry
  • Connections with industry professionals to see how chemistry offers needed and fulfilling careers, and
  • Inspiration for girls and students of color who benefit most from having scientist role models and early science learning experiences.

We also want to thank the Dow ambassadors for coaching this event on campuses and to the teachers who sponsor YBTC clubs.
