History of the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education

BCCE: a tradition for chemical education since 1970.

New Attendee Primer

The Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE) is a national meeting sponsored by the Division of Chemical Education (DivCHED) of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
The Conference is designed for those who teach chemistry at all levels: secondary school science teachers, undergraduate and graduate students, and post-secondary chemistry faculty.

The Conference provides anyone teaching chemistry opportunities for interacting with likeminded colleagues in both formal and informal settings. Teachers who are about to launch their careers, those who are new to teaching chemistry, and those who have teaching experience will find this conference to be an excellent source of materials, techniques, and chemistry content. The BCCE helps teachers make connections with others equally committed to teaching chemistry.

The 23rd BCCE is hosted by Grand Valley State University, August 3-7, 2014.
