It's a Chemical World — A Poster Competition

In collaboration with Science Across World (SAW), the Committee on Chemistry Education's (CCE) Subcommittee on Public Understanding of Chemistry is pleased to announce a poster competition for students between the ages of 10-16, focusing
on the importance of chemistry in the students' daily lives.

Possible subjects include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • our world without chemistry
  • chemistry and my body
  • chemistry and life
  • chemistry and food
  • cooking up a chemical concoction
  • chemistry in cosmetics
  • chemistry in the medicine cabinet
  • sustainable energy at home
  • chemistry and renewable energy
  • chemistry and plastics or polymers in everyday life

The posters can be submitted in any language, either on paper or electronically. For details on how to submit a poster and prize information, go to the Web site listed below.

Lida Schoen from SAW, and a member of the Subcommittee on Public Understanding of Chemistry, is the coordinator of the contest. SAW-whose motto is exploring science locally, sharing insights globally-manages a database of around 2000 school teachers from all over the world. If you're not familiar with SAW, have a look at <www.scienceacross.org>.

Prizes will be awarded and all winning posters will be exhibited at the IUPAC Congress in Ottawa in August 2003. The display will coincide with the launch of IUPAC's Public Understanding of Chemistry initiative and with the special session held on the topic on Thursday 14 August 2003.
