Cambridge Chemistry Challenge - Lower Sixth has been set up to encourage young people, and their teachers, from all over the world to engage with interesting chemical problems. Every month there is an on-line challenge competition consisting of five levels of increasing difficulty. Once you have solved the top level you can choose to appear on the C3L6 honours board for that month. In June there will be a separate Lower Sixth competition, open to students studying in the UK in Year 12 (Lower 6th) or below. It will take the form of a 90 minute written paper which students will take at school and those who perform best will win an invitation to a residential camp at the University of Cambridge at the end of August.
