About the Program
PZ Cussons Chemistry Challenge was initiated in 2013 by the PZ Cussons Foundation to stimulate, inspire and reward the study of science and chemistry in particular among senior Secondary school students. Chemistry is a dynamic and interesting discipline that cuts across all areas of human lives. It is the central science that is deeply ingrained in Health Care, Engineering, Business, Management, Government, Marketing, Product Development, Environmental Management and even Law.
PZ Cussons Chemistry Challenge 2014
In view of this central and important role, PZ Cussons is promoting the study of chemistry through open competition amongst Nigerian secondary schools. The primary objective of the competition is to stimulate and inspire the learning of Chemistry amongst students and raise their IQ. It is to also demonstrate the relevance and role of chemistry in our society.
