Chemistry in Portugal – what it is and what you can become
The Youth Chemists Group aims to promote a nationwide action to promote Chemistry, as a successful professional decision and a relevant scientific area. The GQJ plans to perform workshops in major schools across the highly populated districts, but also in the municipalities of the interior. We call this initiative “Chemistry in Portugal – what it is and what you can become""
