IYC Interests:Increase the public appreciation and understanding of chemistry
Encourage interest of young people in chemistry
As a PhD student in Theoretical Chemistry, I've also taken an interest in educational issues. We see a worrying decline in interest for chemistry among young students, which is a trend we want to reverse. Therefore, I'm part of a group in our department (KTH Chemistry) that seeks to increase interest in chemistry during next year.
I am responsible for a web section at the KTH School of Chemical Sciences' homepage. We want to draw the attention of primary and secondary school students and provide inspiring contend. We plan to organize several events during the year, as well as collaboration with secondary schools.
Some educational tools will also be posted on the homepage. We are grateful for all types of collaborative suggenstions.
