I'm a Chemistry student of the Colombia's National University. This means, I'm very related to Chemistry.

I've always been so interested about making Chemistry easier and more understandable to the people, so they can find out, how important Chemistry is in their own lives. Also I'm always looking for to make people to understand, that Chemistry is a young science, with so many things to discover. Unlike most of the other natural sciences, Chemistry can go beyond the limits of nature and make totally new molecules, with some amazing uses or just amazing structures.

In IYC 2011 I want to make some activities with young people to make them closer to this beautiful science.
