Many of you are aware that we participate in the You Be the Chemist (YBTC) program. It is an educational program geared toward teaching our children the value of chemistry in their everyday lives. The schools, students and parents at Bethany (the school we sponsor) have provide nothing but positive feedback regarding this program. Each year the students are more and more eager to outdo the previous year in the competitions. The teachers have also seen improvement in grades and willingness to learn.
Our School Challenge was held on March 20th at 10am on the Bethany campus. There were 4 rounds with prizes for each round, a Jeopardy style competition. It was an exciting day for the students as well as the entire school. In attendance from Ross Organic was Erin Coulter, COO, Susan Smith, Operations Manager and Amanda Lee, Junior Chemist. We’re extremely proud of our students for their participation and the enthusiasm they had throughout the morning.
Our 2015 State Challenge will be held on April 25th at the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana.
