IYC Interests:Increase the public appreciation and understanding of chemistry
Encourage interest of young people in chemistry
Generate enthusiasm for the creative future of chemistry
Celebrate the role of women in chemistry
I am a women doing my MSc in Chemistry in the university of Kwazulu-natal. I love chemistry and I have found that most students in their first year of study do not understand much about chemistry. To them its just another module that is there and likes complicating things. I would love for them to get an awareness compaign in which chemistry can be explained in detail, what it involves and who are other chemists who have made an impact in this world. I have notice that there are less women in research and this is a great oppotunity to make them aware.
