The Chung Ling Chemistry Competition is viewed by many as the “Olympics of Chemistry” in Taiwan. It consistently attracts hundreds of students from leading high schools around Taiwan. This year, on March 10, a total of 222 groups and 666 students took part in the competition.

The contest consists of two phases: a written test followed by the subsequent formal competition. Entrants who pass the written test can progress to the formal competition stage. This year, a total of 34 groups gained entrance into the final competition stage. These finalists wore white lab coats, protective goggles, masks and gloves, and used the most advanced chemistry equipment.

Department of Chemistry Chair, Dr. Lin Jyh Shing, explained that the theme of this year’s competition was organic chemistry. It involved an analysis of organic compounds and required students to have a basic knowledge of the process of organic synthesis and an understanding of organic dyes. Entrants were required to perform experiments and the group which displayed the most creativity and the highest level of skill received a cash prize of NT $30,000. This year, for the second consecutive year, the top prize went to Hou Yi-li, Lin Ying-ting and Lin Jian-you from Kaohsiung Senior High School in Southern Taiwan.

The Dean of the College of Science, Dr. Wang Bo-Cheng, noted that each year, the Chung Ling Chemistry Competition attracts a considerable number of outstanding high school students from around the country. This annual competition not only allows students to interact and discuss science, but also enables them to acquire new knowledge as well as enhancing Tamkang University’s academic reputation.
