My interest as a teacher is just the same as my student with reg to Chemistry, as an experimental Science and useful to future Society. Concepts of Chemistry in relation to global pollution, global warming and worldwide weather changes are issues to people all over the world, what are we doing about it? Young people are still not drawn into these issues as much as we want them to, why?Young people need more motivation and rewards in Chemsitry learning with career focus. Can UN do something in this area?

As a teacher of digital era, I use technology based Chemistry supplemented with hands-on experience. Hoping to suceed- Produce one Chemsitry Nobel laurette from Sydney Australia!!
