APS's public outreach specialist, Chris Discenza, traveled to Kenya in July, performing physics demonstrations and delivering materials to the ten rural schools near the equatorial town of Nanyuki. The trip was sponsored by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, in conjunction with the Kenyan Meteorological Department, to teach students about the physics of weather and climate.  APS supplied PhysicsQuest kits for the students at the schools.
