Science Education in Ethiopia

Since I will be traveling to Ethiopia later this Spring and raising an Ethiopian-American child, I have great interest in environmental health in Ethiopia and making a difference there.

I was passed a nice web site that teaches chemistry in a more interesting way. You are able to click on elements within the periodic table and watch a video to learn more about that metal. See http://www.periodicvideos.com/#

It got more interesting when the University of Nottingham went to Ethiopia and helped the students make a periodic table in their language of Amharic. See the video below.

Here is additional information that shares the environmental health challenges of Ethiopia. Partnering universities are a great way to make a difference.

And this is great about how nice it is to give an Ethiopian scientist a new experience.
