foot printsDo Science is entering the 4th year of operations.  Since the beginning I have been providing regular progress reports to the Municipal Council of Moshi, Education Department.  The Kilimanjaro Regional Education Officer has inquired if we could consider expanding outside the city of Moshi.  While I can see many obstacles to this, we are approaching the suggestion with optimism and open minds.

Our hope is to organize a workshop in 2014 for teachers of surrounding village schools.  Currently I am trying to find a realistic time when I can be there.  Either first thing in January or over March Break look like practical possibilities.  The objective would be to assess current practices and brainstorm ideas for professional development and program support for these teachers.

Mme Bertha Msaki greets guests at DST booth

Young Scientists is a Science Fair event that is held annually in Dar Es Salaam.  Last year the winners of this prestigious competition were from the Kilimanjaro Region.  As a results I was contacted by the organizers and we began to talk about future collaborations.  This year I sent 3 of my local leaders to attend the event and to present Do Science at an exhibit booth along with the sponsors.  They had a wonderful experience, one like they had never participated in before.  We will continue talking to see how we can work together in the future.

Reginald Mengi Secondary School scholarship recipients

In August, Do Science was able to provide scholarships for 19 young high school students.  Each were provided with a solar light to help them study at night.  Some were given new uniforms and school bags depending on how much debt they had to pay off.  Here is a group of students from Reginald Mengi students receiving their scholarships.
