Chemistry is always around us. To me, it is a way of understanding the universe, since the nucleosynthesis from stars to the chemical reactions in our body.

As a teacher, I would like to gather and enroll all the school community to participate in many activities related to Chemistry, making 2011 a very significant and marking year in our school.
