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'm a high school teacher in Brampton Canada. I teach the senior chemistry and love to get the young people enthusiastic about chem and its many applications in our every day lives. My motto in the class is "chemistry is life". This is met at first with rolling of eyes, but by the end of the term, the students leave with an appreciation of how much we rely on chemistry.
I have ran a science club with the juniors in the past (gr. 9 and 10). With the IYC I hope to generate some interest with the senior students. I will be shortly starting a Chemistry Club with my grade 11's, where we will start by participating in the Global experiment, and other activities.
