BCC 2019 Wrap-up

We would like to thank all the teams that participated in the 2019 Battle of the Chem Clubs (BCC)!

This year we had 10 teams competing, first in the morning events with challenges like
One-handed Cup Calorimetry, Weighted Questions, Mad Gab, Spectra-cular. Following the morning events was the famous Titration race. For the semifinals, the theme was based on challenges from Minute to Win It, adapted for chemistry purposes. Lastly, in the finals were University of Michigan – Flint, Hillsdale College, and Kalamazoo College. Emerging victorious was Hillsdale! We look forward to seeing all the teams next year!

All the best,
