International Chemistry Olympiad in Kiel a Great Success

Indeed it was!
The 36th International Chemistry Olympiad, the world’s most prestigious chemistry competition which began in Kiel on 18th July, ended successfully on the 27th July to an echo of acclamation.

240 upper school students from a total of 61 countries competed for medals. A further seven countries were represented by observers – never before has the Olympiad enjoyed such a response. Both the contestants and their escorts expressed their enthusiastic appreciation of the excellent conditions under which the competition took place and of the interesting programme which the organisation team of the Leibniz Institute of Science Education (IPN) had put together.

And the German Olympic team was also successful. All four students were among the medallists: Frank Biedermann, Georg Cantor Grammar School in Halle and Lukas Reck, Karls Grammar School in Stuttgart each won a silver medal, Martin Brehm, Goethe Grammar School in Ilmenau and Michael Hell, Leibniz Grammar School in Altdorf near Nuremberg were both gold medallists.
