I am the leader of Scientist Factory, Forskerfabrikken, in Norway. This year, on the behalf of the International Year of Chemistry here in Norway, we shall teach teachers how to teach chemistry thorugh several courses.

I am also a science writer, and now I am working on an article on what new research can tell us about how we should teach chemistry to children and adolescents. I would be most grateful if you could help me find such researchers.

Best wishes
