Best of ChemEd 2021 Social Events

We had door prizes for every event! And everyone won the prize of “being part of a community of chemical educators who share”! Thanks to all our sponsors for donating gift certificates!

We have contacted the door prize winners but if you are too curious —

Zoom chats with presenters

After each day of sessions, attendees joined us for social hour! On Tuesday and Thursday joined the presenters in breakout rooms to ask questions and have an informal chat.

Thursday, July 29 starting at 6:02 am in your local time zone. We had attendees signed up and emailed them their bib and enter their name into a draw for some great prizes (TBA) that chemistry teachers will love! You didn not have to attend the conference to join chemistry educators worldwide in waking up to walk or run 6.02 km!!

Share a teaching tip or chemistry advice

This was your chance to be part of the ChemEd community of sharing. Participants (as well as presenters) were asked to introduce themselves on FlipGrid and then give their best tip for teaching chemistry! See what is posted and add your thoughts. This is also your chance to check out how to use FlipGrid — a simple, free, and accessible video discussion experience! Anyone can simply record a video!
