I teach chemistry in a public school in Bogota Colombia. My main interest in the celebration of IYC 2011 is linked to the life project of my chemistry students as an alternative to personal, professional and allow them to use the chemical as an alternative job to become a tool to emerge from marginalization of the town. You use this celebration to establish relationships with students from other countries and are exchanged along the experience of celebration.
