I have completed my undergrad with honours in chemistry, as well as an MSc in chemistry with specialization in green chemistry and am now working as a chemistry/science/math teacher at a high school in montreal. My interest in the IYC 2011 is mostly because I think it would be a great opportunity to promote science and chemistry at our school to not only the chemistry students but to promote the awareness to the rest of the school. I am going to have my grade 11 students complete a project in which the IYC will be at the basis and have them come up with their own ideas to promote chemistry within the school and communityand then follow through on their event idea.
