I´m a chemistry teacher for technical education (profiossionalyzing) in my city. We are doing a lot of works of the acting areas for IYC.

Two classes in this semester are working with safety foods area. The Class A is answer the question: "washing fruits (tomato and grape) just with water is suficient to remove the content of pesticides residues?". This class, together with a chemical industry (Eurofins) are making gas chromatografic reserching to detect the level of pesticides in this fruits.

The other class, Class B is trying to change artificial colorants, like tartrazin, to natural colorants extracted to cashew nut, that can be used in food.

Every semester, my school does 2 or 3 works (reserch and presentation) for our comunity, disseminating the pleasure to study chemistry.
