I have loved chemistry from a young age and to finaly have an opportunity to study a BSc in Chemistry was a dream come true for me. To most people studying chemistry makes no sense as they regard this field as difficult and this mentality makes most of our learners stay away from chemistry and not understand it and its relevence in our world today.
This is going to be an excellent tool to influence and make people of all ages and backgrounds aware of the role that chemistry plays in our daily lives and how it is used to come up with solutions to the many problems we face such as energy, and may others.
I cannot wait to make an impact around me and hopefully many mo of our learners will take up chemistry at tertiary.
