Three eighth grade students took the top three spots at the You Be the Chemist Challenge over the weekend.
Mason Yu '23, Will Yu '23, and Hugh Sheehan '23 placed first, second, and third at the statewide competition, respectively. You Be the Chemist is a competition and program that celebrates and elevates the science of chemistry to inspire on-going study and careers. Individual students participate in a qualifying test at school before advancing to the local and state challenges, where they participate in several rounds of questioning. Saturday's state challenge was held at Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville.
As the first-place finisher, Mason will advance to the national competition in Washington, DC on June 17.
