I am a teacher of Chemistry to 16-18 year old students and general science to 13-16 year olds.

I am interested in using IYC to promote chemical sciences as a subject to learn, that it is an integral part of any career (we use materials!) and is interesting, wacky and fun.

I am interested in any posters that are available that can be placed around areas of my school and any competitions that can be used within school (and class), nationally (in NZ) and internationally that my encourage some students to be involved.
