I am a school director at the moment buy I've been a chemistry teacher for more than 20 years and it worries me to see that chemistry and all sciences are not being chosen by many students in our countries, at least not as a creative and marvelous way of living, but (when best) as a way to get a degree and get a job.
I think we must create a net of strategies and generate oportunities for all, as we third world countries live on total lack of innovation and depend totally on foreign technologies and industries. We don´t have patents, and our best students go to Europe and USA to study and don´t come back for the lack of places to work and develope their knowledge and skills.
