About:

We are a group of young adults closely observe the UNESCO's Internation Year theme. This year (2010) we have celebrated the Year of "Rapprochement of Cultures" and Tagore's 150th Birth anniversary. As most of the members of our group holds an engineering degree and a natural enthusiamj towards physical science. We are coming up with ideas to stage events and interactive programmes so that we can

1> Increase the public appreciation and understanding of chemistry

2> Encourage interest of young people in chemistry

3> Generate enthusiasm for the creative future of chemistry

4> Celebrate the role of women in chemistry

We have an experience to work with UNESCO and will involve Chemical scientists and engineers to make this event a success.
