Since 2000 the Belgian National Committee for Crystallography organizes a national crystal growing competition for pupils in secondary schools. During a period of four to five weeks they grow their own crystals in the class room (instructions available on this website, limited amount of starting material is send to school). Each class is encouraged to send their best single crystals to the local coordinator. Submitted crystals are judged by a national jury. Participating schools receive a certificate and the winners a trophy and price.
