Judith Atito

Judith Atito is a teacher of Biology and chemistry at The Women’s Institute for Secondary Education and Research (WISER) in Muhuru Bay, Kenya with 20 years of teaching experience. Judith is working with Kennedy Mikula, also an NCSCE-TCI Fellow, to develop some small laboratory exercises for the WISER girls on water quality and chemistry. This could include contamination with microbes, fertilizer, insecticide, and heavy metals, etc. They hope this will enrich and support the current WISER science curriculum. This project will also provide funds for lab supplies, etc. for WISER to enhance science education related to water, with the goal of producing at least one education module/case study/lab exercise that can be used at WISER or other schools, as well as perhaps a module related to the challenges of access to clean water that can be shared with universities in the US.
