Scientist Who Won Miss Virginia With Experiment as Talent Vows to Bring Chemistry to Miss America Stage
Sporting a lab coat, Camille Schrier blew away the competition with a colorful science experiment showing the catalytic decomposition of hydrogen peroxide.
When it comes to the Miss America pageant, we're used to seeing contestants who dance, sing or play an instrument.
But this year, you'll want to keep an eye on Miss Virginia. Biochemist Camille Schrier, 24, was crowned Miss Virginia at the end of June thanks in part to her impressive demonstration in the talent portion of the program.
Sporting a lab coat, she blew away the competition with a colorful science experiment showing the catalytic decomposition of hydrogen peroxide.
"Science really is all around us," she told the crowd to cheers.
Asked if she'll pull off the same stunt on the Miss America stage, Schrier told InsideEdition.com: "I think you will, it might be a little bit different."
Schrier is a graduate of Virginia Tech and is currently studying for her Doctor of Pharmacy at Virginia Commonwealth University.
She will compete in Miss America in September.
