Chemistry Camps Cancelled for summer 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Wisconsin-Madison has cancelled all face-to-face summer outreach programs, including ICE Chemistry Camps. We will provide full refunds to all who have already registered. We regret being unable to provide hands-on science to children for the first time in more than 35 years.

About Us

Communicating Science—that's what ICE is all about. We are a national center for science educators to develop and disseminate ideas. Our efforts are evident in kits and publications, in programs for students and for teachers, and in research in chemical education. Since its founding in 1983, ICE has led the drive to help teachers revitalize science in schools throughout the United States.

ICE served as the Education and Outreach arm for NSEC, the?University of Wisconsin–Madison Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center?(NSEC), which was one of 16 centers funded through the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The goal of the NSEC program was to build infrastructure for nanotechnology research and education across the country.
