As Dean Faculty of Science,University of Khartoum, Sudan, I am interested in promoting Chemistry and raising awareness of the public especially the youth about the significance of Chemistry in our lives.

The IYC2011 is a good opportunity for our students in Department of Chemistry to bring out their talents in activities such as exhibitions, presentations at elementary and secondary schools and projects. The event is also a chance to bring Basic Science in general and Chemistry in particular to the forefront of events.
