10th Sept – 18th Sept
I spent a week in Hong Kong visiting high schools to give presentations on my research into DNA nanotechnology and to encourage students to think about pursuing science and particulary chemistry at University.
On Friday 16th I gave a Public Lecture at Hong University, on “Chemistry of your Senses” which went down with a bang, or two!
I also visited Hong Kong University of Science and Technology to begin discussions for setting up an exchange programme for our students to spend a year on a research project as part of their degree programme.
Many thanks to all the ESF schools for hosting me, in particular the HE counsellors and Chemistry staff. Plans are to return at the end of January 2012, so I am looking forward to seeing you all again then.
