ACS forges partnerships with corporations and corporate foundations to help create a more diverse chemical workforce to reflect our society, improve scientific literacy, and sustain our environment.
For only the second time in its 44-year history, the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) was hosted in the U.S. on July 21-30, 2012. IChO provides chemistry students the opportunity to compete at the highest levels and establish networks that go beyond cultures and borders. As part of its ongoing commitment to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: Dow) invested $2.5 million to bring the IChO to the U.S. for the first time since 1992.
“As a global company with operations in more than 40 participating nations, Dow sees the International Chemistry Olympiad as a prime opportunity to help inspire the next generation of scientists,” said Andrew Liveris, Dow Chairman and CEO. “With more than 95 percent of all manufactured products requiring some level of chemistry, highly educated and inspired scientists will help ensure a sustainable future for our company, our planet and our communities.”
