The Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE) is an official meeting of the Division of Chemical Education of the American Chemical Society. We are celebrating the 25th meeting here on the beautiful campus of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN. Over 1600 chemical educators are on campus. The conference runs from July 29th through August 2nd. 

We hope you will stop in and see us at our ChemEd X booth (#56)!
