After a successful three-year history, the Washington University Chemistry Tournament (WUCT) will return to campus on Saturday, April 6. WUCT is a chemistry competition for high school students, created and managed by a group of undergraduates at Washington University in St. Louis. It has become increasingly popular and draws over 300 students and coaches from high schools in Missouri, Indiana, and Illinois to Danforth Campus for a day of challenging but creative applications of their classroom knowledge to a competitive arena.
Volunteers play an integral role in the success of the competition. No prior chemistry experience is needed to help with this event. They will participate in 2-3 hour shifts that include proctoring exams, grading, setting up, cleaning up, and leading student activities. All volunteers will receive a WUCT T-shirt and breakfast and/or lunch.
To sign up, volunteers are invited to attend an optional information session on March 24 from 2-3pm in DUC 276 or March 25 from 7-8pm in DUC 234. Training will be held on Sunday, March 31 from 2-3pm in DUC 276 or Tuesday, April 2 from 7-8pm in DUC 234. Training sessions are mandatory and will involve a detailed description of everything that the day involves.
