This project is focusing on the further development of NATURAL SCIENCE & CHEMISTRY in junior and high schools in developing nations around the World over the next 10 years at least, and we have called the project “One Million IMPACTING Two Hundred Million”!!

Hi Everybody

As we all know, “The International Year of Chemistry (IYC) 2011 was a year-long celebration in which anyone could participate, where they can coordinate an activity, engage in a project, or simply share an idea, or become part of something special.” Now as we draw to the end of 2011, the question is what about 2012 and beyond?
 
How can we continue to build on the great work that “The International Year of Chemistry Network” has started, that will eventually meet global challenges face to face, for the future benefit of all who exist on this Amazing Planet Earth, that we all call HOME?
 
We would like to share an idea and invite you to look at a NEW EXCITING PROJECT that we have just launched now in November 2011. This project is focusing on the further development of NATURAL SCIENCE & CHEMISTRY in junior and high schools in developing nations around the World over the next 10 years at least, and we have called the project “One Million IMPACTING Two Hundred Million”!!
 

We have a short introductory video about our AMBITIOUS and AMAZING project waiting for you NOW on this web page http://www.mylab.co.za/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=16&Itemid=19 (if the website is slow, please try again later, we have been receiving hundreds of hits every hour since our launch).
 
We encourage you to take the time to listen to what this project aims to achieve, and if you Love NATURAL SCIENCE & CHEMISTRY and you if AGREE with what we are striving to achieve, then you will have an opportunity to receive more details about our project by registering on our mailing list, which will send you the link for the second video.  But for now, watch our first introductory video, and please forward this invitation to all your friends and colleagues that you think will be interested in such a project.
 
Thank you for your time, and we’ll be speaking to you through our videos soon.

Yours sincerely
 
Sydney & Wilma Kloppers
