The Washington University Chemistry Tournament (WUCT) is an annual chemistry competition held on Washington University’s campus in St. Louis, MO.
We invite high school students 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. Additionally, WUCT hosts a teacher enrichment program, led by WashU faculty, to discuss various collaborative learning strategies and critical thinking techniques that Washington University uses in its STEM classrooms. WUCT emphasizes real-world applications of science and encourages problem-solving and teamwork skills. WUCT 2017 had 250 students and teachers attend from six states. The third annual WUCT will be held on April 7, 2018.
