Pakistani students win medals in Moscow IChO

ISLAMABAD, July 29: The contingent of Pakistani students under the STEM Careers Project of Higher Education Commission (HEC) won two Bronze medals in 39th International Chemistry Olympiad at Moscow.

Shaina Khan, Lahore Grammar School and Anita Pabani, Karachi Grammar School trained at the H.E.J. Research Institute of Chemistry won this distinction.

Over 360 students from 68 countries participated in this international moot, says a Press release here Saturday.

The group was led by Dr Khalid M Khan and Dr M Shaiq Ali of the H.E.J. Research Institute of Chemistry, University of Karachi. The H.E.J. Research Institute of Chemistry, University of Karachi has contributed in bringing pride to our nation.

The idea to organise the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) was started in the former Czechoslovakia. In 1968, the Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) was a part of a secondary school system already in all countries of the Soviet block.

On May 15, 1968 a meeting was organised in Ostrava (Czechoslovakia) with the aim to create some basic rules for the international competition, called as International Chemical Olympiad later on.

Three countries took part, with representatives of the National committees of the countries.

The report gave answers to some fundamental questions that later formed a basis for the preliminary regulations of the new international competition.

The organiser of the competition is the Ministry of Education of the organising country.App
