My role as Public Awareness Scientist involves communicating the chemical sciences to schoolchildren and the public through a variety of different activities and events. IYC 2011 is an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of chemistry even more, and at Nottingham we will be organising special events to celebrate IYC in addition to the many outreach events we carry out annually.
