On May 20, the semifinal and the final of the All-Armenian Tournament of Young Chemists was held. This year the tournament was held with the support and sponsorship of Converse Bank, which has had great input in the implementation of a number of education projects in Armenia.
In total, 11 teams competed in the semifinal, and only four of them advanced to the final, where Photon team from Gyumri became a winner.
At the end of the final, the tournament organizers announced about a surprise, which could be turned into a reality thanks to the support of Converse Bank. The surprise was the following: a national team was to be set up from the four teams that had advanced to the final, which would then participate in the Tournament of Young Chemists in Ukraine.
The team selection process was completed on September 7. The Armenian team will be represented by five members. The team will be accompanied by two coaches.
