Dear ChemEd X Community,
Have you attended a BCCE (Biennial Conference on Chemical Education)? This year marks the 25th BCCE, celebrating the 50th anniversary since the first conference. The BCCE has a reputation among high school teachers for not being valuable for the secondary crowd. As a new teacher 20+ years ago, I was told by my mentors that ChemEd was for me, but BCCE was just for college instructors. I think that reputation only exists among teachers that have not attended one in the past decade. I attended my first BCCE in 2010 and have never been disappointed. There are many high school educators that are working to develop even more symposia and opportunities for the precollege crowd. This conference provides a fantastic venue to share and learn with other passionate chemical educators. Besides improving your craft, you will find friends across the country and maybe even outside of the states that will re-energize your career. Visit the BCCE website for details. Registration, lodgiing and other details continue to be updated.
I also highly recommend taking the opportunity to present at the conference. Presentations are 20 minutes. There are over 100 symposiums to consider submitting an abstract for. See the Abstract Submissions page for more details. Scroll to the bottom of that page to find the link to the ACS abstract system. The abstract submission deadline is February 20th, so time is short.
