International Program Fills Science Education Voids in Uganda

Before leaving Uganda I worked on this story for the Global Press Institute. They just published it to coincide with the National Science Week in Uganda which started yesterday.  I knew Betty Kituyi and the wonderful work she was doing with Café Scientifique in Uganda. I wanted to bring her amazing work to the rest of the world.

My work producing and editing the PeaceTalk youth newsletter taught me that students are keen to supplement what they learn in class with what is happening in the environment around them. They are eager to make the connection and when this information is made available to them, it goes a long way in building their leadership skills.

First I wanted to do a face-to-face interview but Betty said, “No, Jackee, I am hosting a large café in Mukono. Please come and witness what is happening and how it is done.  Afterwards we can do the interview.”
