I teach General Science from Year 7-10 and will be teaching VCE Chemistry this year. As a science teacher I make sure that my students get involved in the Science Week for the year which usually corresponds with the International theme of the year. I am fascinated to know that this year we are celebrating CHEMISTRY and would love my students to get more information on Chemistry with cool chemistry experiments and related workshops.
