Biology professor emeritus delivers donated microscopes to Kenya

by Mark Peal on August 31, 2012

The Norwich Biology Department donated six microscopes to a mission-run school in the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya. The Anajali School educates 450 students in grades pre-K to 8 in one of the poorest communities in Africa.

Carlos Pinkham ’65, a biology professor emeritus and member of the Green Mountain Community Alliance Church, which supports the school, joined the mission trip to Kenya this summer. He developed a lesson plan for use of the microscopes and showed teachers and students how to use them.
