We strive to engage and learn about the newest innovations in the field of chemistry. Whether it be through experiments, lectures, or the finale of Breaking Bad, we love the study of chemistry.
We aren't an exclusive group. Anyone with an inkling of interest in chemistry is welcomed to join, participate, or even lead chemistry-focused events. The UCC is focused on creating a group that anyone can enjoy.
Science education is key enrichment for middle schoolers and high schoolers. Through engaging after school programs, the UCC is determined to provide fun and educational after school programs to school children in the community.

Project Pumpkin - Project Pumpkin is an event organized by the Northwestern Community Development Corps (NCDC) in the days before Halloween. It takes place in the Norris Student Center and provides a safe environment for disadvantaged children to trick-or-treat. The UCC provides a booth every year filled with candy and a chemistry demonstration or two. For more information, please contact one of the SCOPE chairs.
Eberhard Halloween Show - A show of boos and booms. Northwestern's own Eberhard, chemistry demonstrator to the (future) stars, gives an hour-long show full of cool chemistry tricks, including explosions, glowing chemicals, and more explosions. This is truly a Northwestern institution, one that all levels of undergrads (and some grad students) come out to see. Truly a one-of-a-kind show!
NCDC - The UCC aids the NCDC in helping refugee children by providing those children with a afternoon of chemistry-related fun. For more information, please contact one of the SCOPE chairs.
Eberhard Beach Show - Take all of the fun of the Eberhard Halloween Show and move it to the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan. Featuring the loudest explosions of the year, along with bad chemistry jokes and other demos.
