Online information retrieval in the experimental round of chemistry olympiads
Two Olympiads for chemistry students of Belarusian institutions of higher education were held at the Chemistry Department, Belarusian State University, in the 2010/2011 academic year. The novelty of the Olympiad programs was in the special five-hour experimental rounds of online information retrieval. At that stage of the contest, competitors were tested both on their search skills and ability to analyze the content and reliability of the documents retrieved. The tasks and solutions for one of the Olympiads were presented.
