“Chemistry is central to our daily lives as the basic understanding of the subject aids in the processing and manufacturing of several household products in the PZ portfolio.
“As part of our education intervention, the Board of Trustees agreed to sponsor a programme that will address the seemingly declining interest inchemistry, and science in general. We hope this will rekindle the interest of our children in the study of chemistry and find it not just stimulating but more exciting.”
