I am Pharmaceutical Chemist and I worked in Pharmaceutical Industry for 16 years; I have been worked as Chemistry and Biology Teacher in Secundary School since 2007. I think that is very important increase the appreciation and interest of very young people in chemistry. In my country, Mexico, we have a serious problem: the number of professionals in science decrease each year, so our society neads urgently scientists. I am sure that the role of the professors is generate enthusiasm for the science activities.

I am very interesting in participate -my students and I- in the IYC 2011 will be an honor.
