This is discussion about Flow Cytometry: Engaging Students in Global Health Issues via Technology.

I love Jeff's project here. Many economies are struggling worldwide and we cannot simply continue to throw money at problems such as those in Kenya and expect true change. Through research on low cost scientific methods, like here with flow cytometry, we can enable impoverished nations to improve their own quality of life. This project will lead to improvements in healthcare as well as opportunities for education, both of which will help Kenya secure it's future.
Please view the presentation, "A Cytopeian Adventure" (link below), to see how current STEM partnerships and activities will benefit from a Changemakers Partnering for Excellence Award(s), and how these partnerships will contribute to the support of this award(s) if granted.

If a Changemakers Partners for Excellence Award(s) is granted to our collaborative STEM flow cytometry project, we will be able to spread flow cytometry from US high school classrooms to partnering schools in Western, rural Kenya.
