SCITECH EDUCATION EMPOWERS HAITIAN GIRLS: 

 

SciTech Educational Solutions, a consulting firm that innovatively teaches science and math to the brightest minds in New York, travelled to Haiti to highlight how easily Haiti's Youth can be empowered. Huddled around a microscope at FF, a group of students examined a freshly made slide of a blood sample collected by fellow student Marie Christie Pierre who agreed to prick her finger. Kim Magloire, a Haitian-American and president of SciTech asked, "Do red blood cells have a nucleus?" "Of course they do," they all chimed in French. "Then identify the nucleus of a red blood cell on the slide," said Magloire.  When nobody could find one, she promptly explained that in humans, red blood cells eject their nucleus in order to move easily through a blood vessel. "Really? I never heard that before," said Mirlame Ceant, another student.  "FONDATION FELICITE (FF) was pleased that SciTech would work with these students, many of whom want to be doctors, Haitians are so used to rote memorisation that the chance to have a hands-on workshop that would challenge them to think critically was exciting." says head of FF, Bayyinah Bello.
