WUCT is an annual chemistry competition held on Washington University’s campus in St Louis, MO. The competition invites high school students from across the nation to participate in a series of individual and team-based chemistry exams, engage with college students and faculty, and earn recognition at an awards ceremony. WUCT emphasizes real-world applications of science and promotes fundamental problem-solving and teamwork skills.
The first tournament was held in April, 2016, and drew 180 high school students from near and far. We are planning for over 300 participants in our upcoming 2017 competition.
