I am a teacher of Chemistry in secondary education (11-18) and through the RSC of which I am the Hon Secretary of the local section (Liverpool) I am organising a lot of events for young people in order ot get them involved in chemistry and encourage them to do chemistry at A-level because they enjoy the subject and not because they need it as an entry requirement for university. I am hoping that there will be events during the year in which we can get involved, I am also hoping that I might be able to pick up ideas which can be used in the years to come. I also want to raise the awareness about the constant decline of the teaching content of chemistry in secondary education in Britain and the problems which are associated with this.
