I am teaching Chemistry (organic and inorganic) at a Secondary School in Ushuaia, Argentina. I´m always searching new ways to improve my student´s interest in chemistry and natural sciences. So, the IYC 2011 stands as an excellent opportunity to get them involved in doing science and learning at the same time. We do not have a Science Lab at school so I would like to see if there is a chance that we can receive a kit to do both the four experiments. Thanks a lot! We´ll keep in touch!
