: Within the framework of the 2011 International Year of Chemistry (IYC), the Office and Legislative and Public Affairs at the National Science Foundation (NSF) is in the process of launching the Chemistry Now initiative in partnership with NBC Universal. The aim is to create a series of weekly “content bundles” of original and archival news videos and multi-media content to be distributed on-line to K-12 science teachers, and beyond schools into the community.
Chemistry Now content will concentrate on revealing and explaining the presence and function of chemistry in everyday life and in the world around us, with special focus on the lives and work of those at the frontiers of 21st century chemistry.
