New Jersey Chemistry Olympics Today

I interrupted my vacation today to work at the New Jersey Chemistry Olympics as I have done at NJIT for at least 10 years.  High School students from all over NJ come to NJIT and compete in 10 events.  I organized and judged the information search.  Students were require to build a model of a molecule of an antihistamine of their choice.  A chemistry professor would judge the quality of their model.  In the information search the students use online databases to answer questions about antihistamines.  I sensed that the students had fun doing it.  NJIT hopes that this event will attract good high school students to enroll.
