I am Science Educationist in training with specialisation in Physics education. I am a manager in a science centre (NGO) where we implement a wide range of science education suport programs for learners and educators. Chemistry forms a large part of what we do on daily basis. This we do either by conducting science experiments for school leaners, educators workshops, and science shows, which are aimed at inspiring learners to follow science-based careers. We also have a wide range of interactive science exhibits that focus on chemistry on our science centre floor. I currently serve in the IYC LOC in South Africa.
