About:

The alarmingly low number of students studying natural sciences inspired us to create a national summer science academy at the Tbilisi State University, Tbilisi, Georgia. Every year, we hold a summer science academy for 13 to 17 year old students in the natural sciences. This year program will provide excelent opportunity to observe many aspects of chemistry, including its history, global trends and perspectives of chemistry for sustainable development, and the social and economic impacts.
