We really encourage all two-year college educators to speak at the 2020 BCCE about what they are doing that is working for their students. There are multiple types and communities of chemistry educators. Some of us are excellent teachers, educational researchers, or providers of public outreach. Each of us brings value to our understanding of how chemistry is taught and learned, and we can ALL learn from each other.

We are hoping to have a varied program with multiple options for those who are interested in presenting. From a 10 minute quick idea that worked well in the classroom to 40 minutes of how you reformed a class, there will be something for everyone.
The conference focus is on building community. If you have an example of how you were able to bring people together please consider presenting and sharing your work. Our ultimate goal is that everyone leaves the conference feeling they are part of a bigger community of Chemistry Educators and ready to build community in the classroom and out.
The ACS Division of Chemical Education is co-sponsoring an ACS webinar on Jan 30, 2020 called The Secret Lives of Snowflakes: Peculiarities in the Molecular Dynamics of Ice Crystal Growth. The Webinar is FREE and open to all that are interested.
The 26th Biennial Conference on Chemical Education, BCCE 2020, will be held on the campus of Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon USA July 18-23, 2020. We invite our chemistry education and science education colleagues at the pre-college level (K-12) and college level to submit abstracts of their work for presentations in the symposia sessions, the general papers sessions, or the poster sessions.
ACS is offering an opportunity for you to be able to collaborate with local academia and learn from chemists about the challenges, surprises and achievements of chemical synthesis in the pharmaceutical industry.

High School Chemistry Teachers are sought to share their perspectives on the effects of trauma in the high school chemistry classroom - as well as how teachers choose to deal with the effects of trauma in their own classrooms by completing a short survey. Please share this survey with your high school chemistry network.
The annual STANYS (Science Teachers Association of New York State) coming up in November promises to grow your understanding of everything NGSS chemistry related from sessions on phenomena, to growing your understanding of Science and Engineering Practices, to incorporating instruction by means of Cross-Cutting Concepts, to storylines and assessment.
