The Department of Chemistry at Thompson Rivers University has presented a grade 11 and grade 12 Chemistry Contest to BC high school students for the part 15 years. We would like to include IYC 2011 in our contests, schedule for may 18, 2011. We typically have about 3,000 higth school students participate, and this would represent another way for them to connect with IYC and to gain a greater appreciation for Chemistry.
