Water - a chemical solution

Thousands of Students, from 800 cities and 80 countries collected masses of data during this great IYC educational global activity which might turn out to be the largest chemistry experiment ever.

The Global Experiment: Water a Chemical Solution was launched in March 2011 on World Water Day. This Experiment has now grown and has become the largest experiment done globally. At the end of February 2012, there were 77 432 students registered on the website. IUPAC and UNESCO would like to thank the global community and all those who participated in the Global Experiment.
