King Abdullah University of Science and Technology will also celebrate IYC 2011 in it’s own unique way.

During 2011 Winter Enrichment Program , we will have a series of lectures and presentations by prominent chemists. These lectures are intended for the general public so everyone is invited to take part of this great event.

To encourage young and enthusiastic high school students to pursue their higher education in chemistry, we will be conducting here at KAUST, on 17th January 2011 from 5 to 7 pm, a series of demonstration experiments with the help of highly experienced scientists.
