Actually I think very important to be induced chemistry to children. Especially in Portugal, a country where the chemistry is so undervalued. I think it will be very important to build in 2011 the International Year of Chemistry to introduce activities that generate in the students interest and curiosity in this area. The schools in my opinion should be the main focus of attention. For the chemicals of tomorrow will be the students.
