Young Ambassadors for Chemistry in Cyprus
The YAC adventure continues. This time, the Young Ambassadors for Chemistry program set up shop in Cyprus, where 45 teachers and 37 students from secondary schools participated in workshops and public events.
Students (roving reporters) interview Nicosia’s mayor on her ideas about chemistry.
Held in Nicosia, Cyprus, 8–11 April 2009, the program was facilitated by the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture. A small group of chemistry teachers guided by Valia Angeli-Partassidou and Tasoula Karamichali, under the direction of the Inspector of Chemistry Loukia Anastasidiou, organized the YAC course at the Paedagogical Institute and the event at Eleftheria Square in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus. A detailed report is available from the project web page listed below.
The YAC team—working with the Ethiopian Chemical Society and the Federation of African Chemical Societies—hopes to visit Ethiopia during the 2011 International Year of Chemistry. See <www.chemistry2011.org/participate/ideas/show?id=6>.
