IYC Interests:Increase the public appreciation and understanding of chemistry
Encourage interest of young people in chemistry
Generate enthusiasm for the creative future of chemistry
Celebrate the role of women in chemistry
As a woman scientist especially Chemist , I have noticed with awe the decline in appreciation and interest in today's youth towards Chemistry. It is now studied as a substitute for Pharmacy in most cases, not out of the love of being a Chemist. I feel in our country it is now a course that is pursued out of dejection , if ever there is an English word like that. I am saying this because of the caliber of students that come to industry for their internship programs it really is a cause for concern.
I am not 100% sure of what causes this , but I think most industrialists do not respect THE CHEMISTS!!!!!
