The 2006 Year of Chemistry in Korea
A Year of Chemistry was celebrated in 2006 in South Korea as part of an effort by the Korean government to enhance appreciation of science. The celebration was timed to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Korean Chemical Society (KCS).
Choon H. Do reminds us that an activity that proved popular with students was a chemistry poster contest in which more than 900 middle and high school students participated. The contest encouraged kids to think about the roles and effects of chemicals and chemists. The wining posters were shown during the Fall Annual Meeting of KCS. Such activity will be fun to organize again during the IYC.
