It is officially over in Jamaica – the Celebrations of the International Year of Chemistry, 2011 (www.chemistry2011.org).
Thanks to Dr. Ainka Brown, Dr. Kayanne McCook-Russell, Dr. Patrice Peart, Mr. Kamau Francis and Prof. Robert Lancashire for conceptualizing, creating and/or promoting our blog. Thanks to all the contributors of articles posted under ‘The Contributions of Chemistry’. We thank all the people who made this blog exciting and active (particularly during the period of voting for the best high school chemistry teacher).
A special thanks is extended to Ms. Debbie Facey who kept the blog beautiful and organized and who kept the blog current. She did a tremendous amount of work keeping us connected and was fundamental to the success of this medium in promoting the contributions of Chemistry. Thank you, Debbie!
Chemistry has touched the lives of all of us in this group in some way or other and we salute the subject. As we go beyond IYC 2011 we go acknowledging the role that chemistry plays in our daily lives and importantly how it sustains the very existence of our planet.
We use this opportunity to celebrate all the persons who contributed to the success of IYC 2011, Jamaica. We acknowledge our sponsors:
Do have a lovely Christmas season. Best wishes for 2012 and beyond. God bless you.Simone Williams
