美国少年化学家挑战赛YBTC

据悉,YBTC由美国化学教育基金会和美国陶氏化工支持举办,试题的难度跨区大,涉及领域广,极具挑战性,为数不多的学生可以获得高分。

It is reported that YBTC, supported by Chemical Educational Foundation in United States and Dow Company, has a large scale of difficulty, covers a wide range of fields and is extremely challenging, few students can get high scores.

美国少年化学家挑战赛(简称 YBTC)主要针对从小学五年级到初中二年级(5 至 8 年级)还没有系统学习过化学学科的同学。因此,YBTC 的宗旨就是启蒙和激发同学对于化学学习和科学探索的兴趣与信心,激励他们成为未来的科学家。每年,来自美国四十一个州超过 6 万名同学参加 YBTC。YBTC 已经成为美国规模最大的青少年科学活动之一。也是大多数美国热爱科学的同学低年级时必参加的科学类活动。

YBTC(You Be The Chemist)is aimed at students who have not systematically studied chemistry from the fifth grade of primary school to the second grade of junior high school (grades 5 to 8). Therefore, YBTC’s mission is to enlighten and inspire students’ interest and confidence in chemistry learning and scientific exploration, and to inspire them to become future scientists. Every year, more than 60,000 students from 41 states in the United States participate in YBTC. YBTC has become one of the largest youth science activities in the United States. It is also a scientific activity that most American science students love to participate in in their lower grades.

初中部欧阳老师(指导老师)在接到比赛通知后,查阅大量资料,为学生备赛提供最大的帮助和支持。学生和老师利用课间休息时间一起学习、商讨,为赛事做足了准备。获得如此佳绩,是对学校、老师、和学生最好的嘉奖。希望学生们不骄不躁,再接再厉,为学校再创辉煌!

After receiving the competition notice, Mr. Jackie (instructor) did a great deal of literature review and consulted a large number of materials to provide students with greatest help and support in preparing for the competition. Students and Mr. Jackie used their lunch break and breaks between lessons to study and discuss together to prepare for the event. Obtaining such a good result is the best award for our school, teachers and students. We hope that students will devote persistent efforts and achieve more glories for CBS.
