Rabi Musah, who grew up in Ghana, joined the University's Department of Chemistry in 1998. During the summers, she is involved in a "Young Women in Science" program at the Simon's Rock College of Bard. The program is designed to encourage young women ranging in age from 13 to 17 to explore careers in science. She also participates locally in providing "show and tell" experiments, designed to demonstrate the wonder of science, to junior and senior high school students.
