The nation should feel proud as a boy from Bengaluru has bagged silver medal for his exhibition at the 47th edition of International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) 2015 held recently in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Ameet S Deshpande, a student of FIITJEE Bangalore, has achieved something exceptionally great by winning a medal in the International Olympiad. He was one amongst the four Indians who were shortlisted in the event. Moreover around 300 young chemists from five continents and 75 countries were part of this International Olympiad.
The 47th International Chemistry Olympiad was conducted by the Government of India in association with its Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD).
