Exactly three weeks ago, I started the long awaited science program on Lux Radio, the University of Liberia's official radio station. I must thank the dean of the Science College, Dr. Korli Korheine, for his continuous support and Mr. Paul Samuels, the station manager.
Science in Action is all about bringing science closer to people by discussing science as it is applied to our society। Now, I can discuss science related activities with students, professors as well as other professionals working in any field of science.
Last week, I had my first program aired. It was about science, technology and society under the topic, ''Obtaining a Cleaner Energy।" Two students at the University of Liberia were my guests. They are building an electric power system that, according to them, could bring about clean, silent, and continuum energy. That could be a solution to the global demand for cleaner energy source! I wish to publish their concept here if permitted to do so.
This week, I will be visiting the White Planes water treatment plant in rural Montserrado County to have a forum with the staff at that water plant। The topic to be discussed is, '' The science of water purification-from the source to the consumers." Vey interesting!
Next week, another interesting topic about science, nutrition and society. We'll be discussing the chemistry and side effects of monosodium glutamate (MSG), a spice mostly used by locals to sweeten food in Liberia. My guest will be the dean of the school of Pharmacy at the University of Liberia, Prof. Tapowar Kieh.
I hope you'll be a regular listener if you're in Liberia.
