Hi Chemistry Educators!

Thank you for signing up and joining our ever-growing community of nearly 1,000 interested participants!

The Best of ChemEd sessions are now posted on the University of Guelph’s ChemEd website. Join us this summer for this free three-day virtual event hosted by American Association of Chemistry Teachers (AACT). ChemEd draws teachers from across North America and around the world. Our Best of ChemEd star lineup includes engaging and popular ChemEd presenters from Canada, US, Brazil, UK and Ireland. ChemEd is the largest conference in North America for educators involved in teaching high school and introductory chemistry.


Tuesday —  Microscale, Modelling, Making and using classroom resources, Kinesthetics, Student Research groups, Demonstrations and PhET simulations

Wednesday — George R Hague AP Symposium with the Chief Reader and Chief Reader Designate presenting the results of the 2021 AP Chemistry Exam

Thursday —  Smartphone spectroscopy, Flipped classroom, Chemistry games, Assessment, Beyond Bohr model, Implementing Claim, Evidence and Reasoning

To read more about each session and who will be presenting, go to the ChemEd website.  Actual event registration will be available through the AACT website in May!

Can’t get enough ChemEd?

Our social committee is hard at work planning events outside of session time to capture the engagement of a true ChemEd. Our planning committee is comprised of ChemEd 2023 and ChemEd 2025 members. Leading this virtual adventure is Jean Hein (ChemEd 2023 – Guelph), Linda Cummings (ChemEd 2025 – Colorado) and Adam Boyd (American Association of Chemistry Teachers).  The members of the Social Committee are Doug Ragan, Amy Snyder and Johanna Brown.

Yours in chemistry,
