As a service provider to the industry I see at first hand the challenges that exist both in the promotion of the sector as a whole but importantly in attracting new blood into the sector. Chemistry as a discipline continues to be in high demand here in Australia and if we do not promote the industry with all its diversity, importance to society, excitement and depth of career options we will see a futher diminishing in the numbers of children looking at taking chemistry beyond the age of 10.
