Congratulations to Yousef

As part of The Chemical Institute of Canada’s National Chemistry Week, a crystal growing competition is held for high-school students.  Yousef Alattar,
a regular volunteer in our research group, entered the competition with the Charles P. Allen High School. 
Yousef grew many excellent crystals, and the
best won sixth place overall in the national competition. 

Well done, Yousef!

Further details of the competition can be found at the CIC web-site

Crystals that did not make cut for submission to the
national competition. Note the decomposition of the crystals
over time – when first grown, this set was colourless.
