Visitor from IUPAC, Dr. Lida Schoen

On 11/08/2016, our ikohza have received one guest from Holland, Dr Lida Schoen.


She also gave a talk to MEMOBIO members with the title, ‘Promoting Chemistry across the globe through the YAC programme”.





Dr. Lida Schoen received a doctorate in (analytical) Chemistry from the University of Amsterdam in 1972. Since then she has been involved in education in chemistry and Teacher Training (Amsterdam).  In 1996 she started her own educational consultancy, with mainly governmental commissions. Examples are experimental materials for a new chemistry curriculum (A-level), e.g on spectrometry and biochemistry and for general science on the male pill. A last commission came from the Social Security to write a curriculum and teaching materials to reintegrate unemployed people by means of computer work.  Lida is co-creator with Keith Kelly of the YAC (Young Ambassadors for Chemistry) project and is an active team member and promoter of Science Across the World programme.  In 2007, Lida was made a Knight of the Order of Orange Nassau by her Majesty the Queen for her contributions to Science education in and raising public understanding of chemistry.

The Muslim community in Malaysia and all over the world celebrates Hari Raya Aidilfitri, or also known as Hari Raya Puasa, to conclude the Ramadan holy month of fasting. Hari Raya Aidilfitri is regarded as a merry celebration as it marks a person’s triumph and success on discipline and self-resistance which symbolizes refinement and rebirth.

On 22 July 2016, our ikohza have celebrated Hari Raya after the slide presentation from our guest from the Tsukuba University. We served the foods like rendang, biscuits, cakes, nasi himpit, and many more.
