Grosse Pointe North Chemistry Club Olympiad Team is a project founded during the 2017-18 school year. Members participate in the annual U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad, which is a multi-tiered chemistry competition. The goal of the competition is to stimulate high schoolers to achieve excellence in chemistry. The competition starts with a local exam taken at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. More than 1,000 qualifying students then take the national exam. The 20 top-scoring students are then chosen to attend a study camp where they are selected for the international competition. At the camp, the 20 students undergo rigorous training and the top four students are chosen (based on their performance) to represent the U.S. in the annual International Chemistry Olympiad.
