In 2023, the award ceremony for the ChemKids competition again took place at the Institute of Chemistry at TU Berlin.
In the two rounds of the 2022/23 school year, a total of around 1,000 pupils submitted the recorded results of their experiments with milk. The focus in the first round was on the properties of milk and in the second round on its ingredients. The majority of the submitted work was rated as very good, but 64 pupils stood out in particular and were therefore awarded prizes at a ceremony on 1 September 2023. The winners each received a chemistry set, a book and a cup to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the competition.
8 pupils were rewarded with a 5-day stay in the laboratory at two German universities due to their particularly outstanding achievements.
The afternoon was completed with an exciting lecture by Prof. Roth (FU Berlin) on the topic of sweeteners - a teaser for the tasks in the school year 2023/24.
