Along with SIJ 8th graders, approximately 500 area students participated in the You Be the Chemist competition for High School & Junior High students. They took the written test in class before Christmas. SIJ has been notified that three students who scored in the top 40 placements have been invited to advance to the next level of competition on March 13th at Downers Grove North High School. We are very proud of our winning students, Sarah G., Alexander H., and Grace R. These students have demonstrated excellence in areas of chemistry that they learned in their first semester of 8th grade physical science. Congratulations to our young scientists!
