I am a college professor teaching basic Chemistry courses, and Polymer courses as elective courses for students majoring in Chemistry.

Last April. I was a volunteering instructor teaching local high-school chemistry teachers how to use "ChemSketch", a software that is used to draw chemical structures and create learning materials in teaching chemistry.

For the IYC 2011, I would like to use it to highlight chemical toxicity awareness to public. In Thai society, many people still use lots of toxic chemical substances in foods or materials that are used in contact with foods without knowing the dangerous of these substances to their lives. These have to be changed.
