National Chemical Laboratory (NCL), Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune (IISER) and Exciting Science Group (ESG), are jointly running half-year long outreach activities to celebrate the International Year of Chemistry (IYC) 2011. As part of the program, school students (belonging to the 8th and 9th grade) will get to listen to talks delivered by scientists from NCL and IISER on chemistry in daily lives, get to tour world class research laboratories in NCL/IISER, and get to do specially designed "hands-on" experiments under the supervision of scientists and volunteer research students. Also, the students get to interact with and quiz scientists and researchers about chemistry, life as a researcher and other topics of interest. Over the duration of the workshops, over 1200 school students will get to participate and benefit from these workshops. This effort is mainly undertaken to reach out to the students and teachers in and around Pune and educate them on the utility of chemistry in our daily lives and inspire them to take up science as a career.
This celebration of chemistry is being supported by the Forbes Marshall foundation, Praj foundation, Royal Society of Chemistry, British Council, Association of British Scholars, Pune.
