Ursinus College is pleased to host the
80th Annual Intercollegiate Students Chemists (ISC) Convention
on Saturday, April 16, 2016.
THE ISCC'S CORNERSTONE IDEAL IS
THE ABILITY TO CONDUCT, RECOGNIZE, AND REWARD
MEANINGFUL UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH IN THE CHEMICAL SCIENCES
Program Overview: The conference provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to present original chemical research findings. The presentations are 15 minutes total with 12 minutes for a PowerPoint talk and 3 minutes for questions. They are evaluated by a small panel of judges, and awards are presented. A light breakfast, lunch, and a keynote address by Dr. Patrick Holland, Professor of Chemistry at Yale University are included.
History: The ISCC appears to be the oldest, continuously meeting annual convention of its type in the United States.
The inaugural Intercollegiate Student Chemists (ISC) Convention was held on April 18, 1936 under the guidance of Professor William Buel Meldrum of Haverford College. See iscconvention.org for more convention history.
