The SciBridge project started by The University of Texas postdoctoral fellow Veronica Augustyn and John Paul Eneku, a lecturer at Makerere University in Uganda, has been met with overwhelmingly positive feedback. In an effort to promote scientific collaboration and networking between the US and Africa, 25 low-cost experiments were recently mailed by UT Materials Science & Engineering (MSE) student volunteers to 9 different universities in Uganda, Ethiopia, and Tanzania. These novel, hands-on experiments on dye-sensitized solar cells and aluminum/air batteries are designed for up to 60 students, allowing lecturers in each respective university the opportunity to demonstrate and experiment with a large class. Lecturers at these universities are thus able to educate their students about clean energy by utilizing the sustainable energy technologies provided by the project. With the funding from the Materials Research Society Foundation, the experiments are helping to promote discussion between scientists in Africa and the US. Both the students and developers are looking forward to even more opportunities to collaborate, especially as the positive feedback grows.
