Chemistry has been my favourite subject along the university years and I enjoy teaching it in the IB program.

To talk about the atomic structure is always appealing to the students and to me, as it's the core of the matter around us and its phylosophical considerations about the meaning of it and its origins are highly interesting.

Would be great that the IYC will encourage more students to take into further consideration this subject and its many links with the everyday life.
