Posted on 8/28/2014 6:05:10 PM

Anne Kondo at the BCCESix members of the IUP Chemistry Department  presented their research findings at the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education, the premier conference for chemical educators in the United States, on August 3-7, 2014.

The conference, held at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, MI, is designed for those who teach chemistry at all levels: secondary school science teachers, undergraduate and graduate students, and post-secondary chemistry faculty.

The conference provides anyone teaching chemistry opportunities for interacting with like-minded colleagues in both formal and informal settings. We are excited to see our faculty sharing their knowledge of chemical principles and research! 

Shout out to Laura Fox (BS ’11). It was great catching up with you at the conference!
