Chemistry is an interesting subject and the backbone of Science Courses including Medicine, Pharmacy, Engineering, Agriculture, Environmental Management and others yet many students, however, find it difficult to understand and pass in both internal and external exams.

This major concern propelled the Chemical Society of Nigeria (CSN), Osun Chapter to take a bold step towards changing this narrative, in her bid to complement the State Government’s efforts in the on-going educational sector reforms in the State.

CSN Partners with Osun State Ministry of Education to train 200 Chemistry Educators.

The Chemical Society of Nigeria (CSN) is a professional umbrella body of all Chemists and Chemical Scientists in the State. CSN, in collaboration with the Osun State Ministry of Education, is organizing a Chemistry Educators Workshop tagged “Empower Chemistry Educators 1.0” to hold on Thursday, 16th September, 2021 at the Lecture Theatre, Osun State University, Main Campus, Osogbo by 10:00am.

  1. I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether
    this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my problem.
    You are amazing! Thanks!

  2. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something relating
    to this.

  3. I don’t even know the way I finished up here,
    however I assumed this submit was once good.

    I do not recognise who you might be but certainly you’re going to a
    well-known blogger should you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

  4. I’m extremely inspired along with your writing skills as smartly as with the structure in your weblog.

    Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it
    yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s uncommon to see a nice weblog like this one nowadays..

  5. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult
    time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
