That’s a Wrap on BCC 2018

Thanks to all of our teams that came out to Battle of the Chem Clubs this year! We had 120 participants and 12 teams that came out this year! The team had a blast in the morning completing challenges like Charades, Hidden Figures, Periodic Puzzle, and Precipi…..tation race. After that we went on to the fabulous Titrations race that was a close one! This brought us to the semifinals that were Olympic theme this year. Teams went through the biathlon, hockey, and curling! In the finals we had Hope College, Olivet College, and Kalamazoo College. Kalamazoo came out on top and won the Silver Sep Funnel! We look forward to seeing you next year!

Battle of the Chemistry Clubs 2018!

I am pleased to announce that registration is open for the 11th Annual Battle of the Chemistry Clubs to be held at Michigan State University. The competition scheduled for January 27, 2018 will consist of several events to test your team’s knowledge and skill as it pertains to the different disciplines of chemistry.

For those who are unfamiliar with the Battle of the Chemistry Clubs (BCC), this is an annual event which started between UM-Flint and the University of Detroit Mercy and has grown to 12 schools last year. The day will consist of morning events in which the teams (of 4+) will be scored and ranked. After lunch (provided by us), the playoffs commence. All teams begin the playoffs, but only one will bring home the coveted ‘Silver Sep Funnel’ Trophy.
