What is SciBridge?
SciBridge was motivated by the desire to grow the scientific discussion between U.S. and east African scientists around the critical need for sustainable, global, energy development. Our goal is to provide African students at the university level the equipment and access necessary to conduct research experiments. We create exciting experiment kits around the theme of "materials for energy" and ship them to universities in Africa. After students perform the experiment, we invite a U.S. researcher to give a live web seminar, which is followed by a Q&A and discussion session.
