CEF (Chemical Educational Foundation): You Be The Chemist

The Chemical Educational Foundation's You Be The Chemist® (YBTC) programs are designed to enhance K-8 science education by introducing the central role of chemistry in all the sciences and in our everyday lives. To accomplish its mission, CEF relies on the collaboration of industry, educators, and all members of a community to enhance science education among every generation, beginning with our youth. CEF's current YBTC programs include: YBTC Essential Elements YBTC Essential Elements is designed to assist K–8 educators—our “essential elements” in education—in teaching chemistry concepts through hands-on learning and connecting those concepts to students’ everyday lives. Visit the Essential Elements page for more information on the 5E learning cycle format and how to bring an Essential Elements workshop to the schools in your community!
