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.
To register your team for the BCC, please visit our registration link at:
In order to ensure adequate preparation, please register your team by January 20, 2018. If you have any further questions regarding the Battle of the Chemistry Clubs, please contact the Michigan State Younger Chemists Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 11th Annual Battle of Chemistry Clubs is sponsored by Emergent BioSolutions and American Chemical Society Michigan State University local section.

On October 28th, YCC participated in Chemistry Day at Impression 5 Science center in Lansing. October 22-28th was National Chemistry Week where we celebrate how much Chemistry Rocks! During our time at Impression 5 we showed over 150 young scientists how sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks are formed using starbursts! A huge thank you to the volunteers and support the Impression 5 provided for the day.
Thanks to all of the great teams that came out to compete this year! Everyone had a blast with events such as: titration races, the escape room challenge, dry ice curling, chemistry Pictionary, periodic-table minesweeper, Jeopardy, and more! Check out the YCC Facebook page for more pictures!
The Battle of the Chemistry Clubs will be hosted at MSU on January 28th, 2017. The registration is closed.

Over the past couple weeks, YCC members as well as other wonderful volunteers visited local elementary schools to show the magic of combining science and dessert! Each school hosted a variety of booths and activities for the students to observe and get involved with science. YCC brings plenty of cream, sugar and liquid nitrogen to make ice cream for all the kids to try. This year we tried something new and also made vegan ice cream with coconut milk so that everyone could try and it was a hit! They could add toppings and watch the nitrogen be poured into the mixture and solidify. Check out the photos below from our final Science Night.
Thanks to Marble Elementary, Whitehills Elementary, and Glencairn Elementary for hosting us and thanks to everyone that helped make these events a success!
