Welcome to the

2nd African Conference

on Research in Chemical Education

 

Warmest welcome to the 2th African Conference on Research in Chemical Education, which will be held at the University of Venda in Thohoyandou (South Africa), 22-27 November 2015.  

The conference (under the auspices of FASC, the Federation of African Societies of Chemistry) wishes to emphasise the roles of chemical education for development and, in particular, for sustainable development in Africa by offering an ideal opportunity for sharing experiences among specialists across the African continent and with specialists from other continents. All areas and levels of chemical education are considered, and the known major challenges are given specific attention. Explorations of novel approaches and of novel collaborations will be actively encouraged.

The University of Venda (UNIVEN) is located in an area rich of natural beauties and cultural heritage, offering excellent opportunities for combining an exciting high-quality scientific experience with a delightful immersion in the warmth of Africa.
