Chemistry in our Daily LifeActivity by Mauricio Acelas | added on Mar 12, 2011 | Colombia
Interested in learning how chemistry impacts our daily life? In a series of presentations, I will attempt to demonstrate to secondary students in Colombia how the world would be without chemistry and why it is so important for the development of human kind.
As a member of the Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry Laboratory at Industrial University of Santander, I plan to guide secondary students at Institución Educativa Provenza in Bucaramanga through a wide list of topics related to daily life including electrochemistry, polymers, medicinal drugs, biochemistry and many others.
This is a conferences series oriented to secondary students, teachers and all the people interested in recognizing the importance of chemistry. The results of the conferences will be seen on a science fair coordinated by the students themselves.
The first conference will take place on March the 25th and the others every two weeks for a total of 10 conferences including experimental demonstrations.
