Off to Africa

A new class of students is waiting at the African University of Science & Technology in Abuja, Nigeria. I will be teaching a 3 weeks course called "Introduction to Materials Chemistry".
Being and traveling in Nigeria will allow me to learn more about a country that is vital to our future. Last year's impressions might be amplified or altered...stay tuned.

But the most important thing:

These students are some of the smartest I have ever had in a class room. This is the most important resource Africa has: a smart young generation hungry for knowledge and progress.

My class last year is shown above - you can find out who they are and where they come from on
