As Chemistry Outreach Fellow, I organise and run chemistry activities for around 20,000 school students each year, which take students through some of the most interesting aspects of chemistry and curriculum-relevant chemistry concepts.

IYC 2011 is an opportunity to give the wider public a better appreciation of the importance of chemistry and to further develop chemists' ability to communicate with the wider community.
