 SCHOOL VISITS:

We visited the primary and secondary schools in the center of Amasya city. We made simple chemistry experiments and water experiments to take attention on year of Chemistry 2011. We tried to take attention of all schools students and teachers in Amasya. And, they became happy and they tried to make new experiments on water and chemistry. 

THE PROGRAM OF CHEMISTRY 2011

We organised one day program for all school students and teachers of Amasya. We hired a big saloon and we prepared and showed Chemistry 2011 presentation and global water experiment, we made simple experiments and the students made drama for inventions, inventors and their stories. Besides, we showed our experiments and analyses to the audiences. So, they became aware of Chemistry 2011 year and our activities. 

PRESENTATIONS IN AMASYA SCIENCE AND ART CENTER

We invited school students and teachers to our center, and we gave them the opportunity to make experiments by themselves. So, we caused them to wonder and to have interest on Chemistry.


Topic: research, celebrating chemistry, demonstrations Audience: students, teachers, professional chemists, secondary school students
