Proposal Submission is CLOSED!

People often ask "What should I present?" Present your passion!  What do you do in your classroom that you're proud of?   We. Want. To. See. It.  If you love your presentation, we will love your presentation!  If you were looking for a more direct answer, many ChemEd attendees report that they love presentations that are hands-on, make-n-takes, relate to Next Generation Science Standards, relate to how you implement your pedagogy, and are things that they can readily implement in their classroom during the upcoming school year.  Have you presented at a conference before?  Consider grabbing a colleague to present with you!  What better way to #PayItForward and help give other educators the confidence to present.
