The ECS BC Student Chapter held its second annual BC Young Electrochemists Symposium on July 4th, 2014 at the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department building, the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver. The one-day symposium included five presentations by well-known scientists as well as a student poster presentation session funded by the Electrochemical Society and the UBC Chemical & Biological Engineering Department. It attracted more than fifty five attendees from different departments at the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University and Western Washington University. This year, ECS BC Student Chapter proudly hosted five interesting talks in the field of electrochemistry by Dr. Curtis Berlinguette (Professor at UBC), Dr. Hogan Yu (Professor at SFU), Dr. Amin Aziznia (Research Engineer at Mantra Energy Alternatives Ltd.), Dr. Thomas Kadyk (Post-doctoral fellow at SFU) and Dr. Alix Melchy (Post-doctoral fellow at SFU).

Solid State/Electrochemistry Student Mixer at the 97th Annual Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition
On Wednesday June 4th, the British Columbia Electrochemical Student Society held a student mixer for all of its’ membership and for relevant attendees of the 97th Annual Candian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition in conjunction with the Solid State division of the Canadian Society for Chemistry. The goal of this event was to increase awareness within the electrochemical and solid state community of our relatively new student chapter and provide an atmosphere for open discussion between students with similar research interests. The event attracted over 50 attendees and generated some great discussions about research, involvement with the student chapter and up-coming events, including our annual BC Young Electrochemists Symposia.
