The primo Chemistry Education conference in North America returns to Canada—in person—this summer. From July 23 – 27, ChemEd 2023 will be hosted by the University of Guelph. High School Chemistry teachers and Introductory Chemistry instructors from across North America—and beyond—will attend sessions and workshops. Teachers will spend time with teachers exchanging ideas and honing their craft in an engaging, fun atmosphere. We expect hundreds of delegates, eager to interact face-to-face. 


We look forward to this once-in-a-decade opportunity for ChemEd to be hosted in Canada, where the US dollar goes a lot further. Consider joining us for what will be—for sure—an enriching addition to your well-earned summer holiday. ChemEd 2023 will be the 50th anniversary for ChemEd and be hosted by the University of Guelph, returning to Canada where it began in 1973.
