New Zealand launch

In New Zealand we are celebrating the International Year of Chemistry 2011 with a range of events, competitions and speakers throughout the year. A dedicated website will be the hub for all activities, providing updates on what's happening, as well as interesting resources about chemistry.  The launch takes place on Wednesday 9th February 2011 at Wellington's Michael Fowler Centre and features the Merino Gold Fashion Show (where students have bonded gold atoms with exclusive Merino wool, creating Merino Gold) as well as a lecture by Sir Richard Friend from Cambridge University.
