YACs - Young Ambassadors for Chemistry
|The Young Ambassadors for Chemistry
project has as its aim to get young people to communicate about science, to
carry out science activities in public and to explain the science to the
general public. It integrates language and science in a practical
context having students create cosmetics, build DNA, and market and present
their products to an audience.
The Project has been all over the world over the three years since 2004.
