i have been teaching chemistry for the past 12 years. i have seen many students lack the basic understanding of Science in general . to many of them it is just a subject to learn in order to pass their necessary exams.

i would like the IYC to be able to demonstrate to the students that Chemistry is a living subject and has everyday applications and implications.
