SciBridge Project Students Exhibit Solar Cells at the UNESCO World Science Day for Peace and Development
How cools is this?! A few weeks after their SciBridge workshops, students at Makerere University have taken their new knowledge of dye-sensitized solar cells and shared it with their community at the 2014 UNESCO World Science Day exhibition! This is what SciBridge is all about - disseminating ideas with hands-on experiments and watching how they spread and grow! We are thrilled to enable these young scientists to innovate and educate!
The solar cell exhibit was organized by SciBridge Vice Chair and Makerere University Physics lecturer, John Paul Eneku. John Paul writes:
"Today our students (Ireen Ankwasa, Ivan Gimei, & John Bosco Ssebandeke) successfully exhibited dye sensitized solar cells on the World Science Day celebration held here at the university supported by UNESCO. Their exhibition table was the busiest because the idea of a dye sensitized solar cell was rare and visitors were impressed. The table was also visited by the chief guest and visitors from UNESCO, who were impressed."

Fantastic job by all!
