I work at the Scientific Culture department at the National Research Council of Spain (CSIC). One of my main tasks during 2011 it's develop a program of dissemination activities on chemistry.

The CSIC is added to the International Year of Chemistry with a program of activities to promote scientific culture and scientific vocations. Among the activities is a website which will collected informative articles written by researchers of different subjects, experiments, teaching resources, games, a downloadable virtual exhibition, etc.
