I had not heard about the IYCN until I was introduced to the PTYC. I chanced upon the PTYC on Twitter when researching ways to celebrate IYPT2019 at my local university.
Sensing that it was a great opportunity to promote chemistry and science, I forwarded these to my friends and colleagues in Japan and Taiwan, whom I served together with on the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) Steering Committee.
I discovered more about the IYCN through the website and learned that I shared a similar philosophy! I was incredibly happy to learn that such a volunteering group exists that espouse mentorship for the younger chemists in the world.
An article has been published by Lori Ferrins, Christine Dunne, João Borges, and Fun Man Fung in Chemistry International about the Periodic Table of Younger Chemists that has been created during the International year of the Periodic Table 2019. It features 10 young chemists from this Periodic Table. We present every week their testimonies about beeing part of this project.
