New Jersey Chemistry Olympics
Since 1984 the Chemistry Department at NJIT has held a chemistry olympics. High school students from all over New Jersey come to compete. Since the mid 1990s I have run the information search. I pick a chemical substance and the students must search the internet to find information on it. The kids seem to enjoy it. NJIT uses it as a tool to recruit students. Every year I have received a shirt with a different color.
