The Chemical Educational Foundation (CEF) is a nationally recognized, award winning organization with the central mission of promoting the value, importance, and benefits of chemistry education and chemicals. CEF programs are designed to engage chemical companies with the schools and organizations in their community to encourage a greater understanding of science. CEF’s You Be The Chemist programs work to address these concerns by focusing on grades K-8, as we believe that the skills and knowledge that students acquire at an early age will make later learning and understanding easier.
