Thank you Materials Research Society Foundation for the funding - we were able to provide the students with everything from materials to safety glasses and gloves.
Yesterday, Scibridge was represented at the NC State's Global Engagement Expo. The expo showcases and features achievements in international research, teaching/scholarship, engagement and economic development at NC State University. Chris Boggs, a Scibridge Volunteer and a Mechanical Engineering Graduate Student, represented Scibridge. Chris will continue to to represent Scibridge as he travels to Tanzania this May for the 2nd Joint US-Africa Materials Initiative. Scibridge was founded due to the collaboration of chair Dr. Veronica Augustyn and vice chair John Paul Eneku. Congratulations Chris!
The spectrometer donated by Ocean Optics has arrived at Makerere University in Uganda! This is the first instrument donation to SciBridge and will lead to new research opportunities for students at Makerere studying dye-sensitized solar cells.
Recently, Ocean Optics interviewed our chair Dr. Veronica Augustyn about Scibridge and the spectrometer project. That interview can be found here.
Stella Kanyesigye earned her Master of Science Degree at Mbarra University of Science and Technology. Kanyesigye formed her thesis "Analysis of the Performance of Natural Dyes as Sensitizers in Solar Cells" using Scibridge experiment kit contents. Scibridge congratulates you on your recent educational achievements.
