For the second year in a row, Dow is the exclusive sponsor of the Chinese Chemistry Olympiad, which kicked off on April 26 in Changchun, China. Dow partners with the Chinese Chemistry Society in organizing the prestigious academic competition, which began in 1984 and now involves over 150,000 high school students across the country.
“We are proud of the role that Dow plays in inspiring the next generation of scientists in China,” commented Peter Wong, president of Dow Greater China. “The Olympiad provides a good platform for Dow to demonstrate our long-held passion for science, which we hope will be contagious among China’s youth.”
Dow will participate by sharing its innovation stories and science expertise, and engaging competition winners at Dow employee events. Through this sponsorship, Dow also looks to enhance the impact of the national competition by optimizing the tests, upgrading its sustainability contents, and consulting on the science involved.
