Two New Jersey educators recently visited Kenya to instruct educators there in techniques to teach science to students who cannot see. Marilyn Winograd, who has taught students who are visually impaired and is a consultant, and Lillian Rankel, a science teacher, paid their own way to Kenya. They brought a kit they developed that enables students who cannot see to engage in laboratory experiments and determine results by touch. "My big goal is to raise expectations for blind people because they can do pretty much what others can do," Rankel said.
