Armenian students win 3 bronze medals in Chemistry Olympiad

PanARMENIAN.Net - Students from Armenia won three bronze medals in the 53rd International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO), held July 25–Aug. 2, the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport reports.

More than 300 students from 79 countries participated in the competition. This year’s event was slated to take place in Japan, but because of the Covid-19 pandemic, students logged into the week-long Olympiad virtually.

Comprised of Hayk Aghekyan, Leonid Asatryan, Sevada Nersisyan and Tigran Harutyunyan, the Armenian team secured three bronze medals.

In the previous edition of the International Chemistry Olympiad, Armenia had won one silver and one bronze medals.
