Chemical Education Foundation's You Be The Chemist Challenge® is a collaborative, multilevel academic competition that celebrates the science of chemistry and elevates STEM careers.
The Challenge is an academic competition created by the Chemical Educational Foundation® (CEF), a national science education non-profit, to encourage students in grades 5-8 to explore chemistry concepts and discover their real-world applications.   
Qualifying teams compete at Regional Challenges where they collaboratively answer timed short-answer questions.   

Competing schools included: 
Aragon Middle School- Cy Fair ISD
Barrow Elementary 
Clute Intermediate
Stephen F Austin STEM Academy

Advancing teams from each Regional Challenge create a video exploring the role of chemistry in their community. Videos are evaluated by a panel of judges, and the top video from each state is recognized on the CEF website. The top 10 teams, selected from those recognized in each state/territory, participate in an on-site competition in Houston, TX, where they are evaluated onsite by a panel of judges on their video creation process, explored topics, and overall knowledge of scientific concepts addressed in the video. The top teams receive prizes and recognition.  

Congratulations to the Clute Intermediate 2nd place team advancing to the video challenge: Micah Johnson, Francisco Zamora, Nathaniel Nevarez and Servando Saenz
The 3rd place team members are Nicholas Harrold, Victoria Laws, Quynh Anh Nguyen and Julieanna Valdez.

Other participants who took the challenge: Alexandra Agut, Judah Morrow and Hayden Burns. 
And a huge thank you to the sponsoring teachers Jennifer Janis, CIS 5th Grade Science and Jamie Morton, SFA 5th Grade Math & Science.
