About:

I our country, people don't know enough about chemistry. In so many cases, they talk about chemicals but they think it is physics!

on the other hand, chemistry is not a famous major between Iranian. because they think if they study chemistry, they couldn't found a good job!

And other thing is I think: CHEMISTRY DOESN'T HAVE A FLOG.

I have to explain that: people know more about physics than chemistry:

ask some one this: Name 5 of most great scientist: most of people named 5 physicians and no chemist.

all of the people know Einstein, but no one knows about Pauling or R.B. Woodward

I found that between chemistry student too.

I think we should introduce our legends to people. they should know our dreams and aim.

THEY SHOULD KNOW WHAT IS THE CHEMICAL INTELLIGENT VS. MATHEMATICAL OR PHYSICAL INTELLIGENT.
