This is a wonderful way to bring the IYC to the public's attention and get people in our community thinking about chemistry in their own lives. We hope to encourage as many high school students as possible to attend and start thinking about chemistry as a choice for their post-secondary education.
This is only the first of our planned activities, and what a great way to launch IYC events at UNB! It is our hope that the greater Fredericton community will be interested in this lecture, and then in participating in our open-house being planned for October.
