As a member of the Department of Chemistry at the University of New Brunswick, I am happy to announce that we have a busy fall semester planned with a few different IYC events. We want to use the IYC to reach out to the greater public and communicate the wonders and good that chemistry brings, and try to help dispel some of the negative associations. We also want to encourage students of all ages to come to our events and learn more about the fascinating world of chemistry, the central science!
