Blind Science on the Morning News


“Moving Hand” experiment on KTVE morning news from Monroe, La.

5th-grader Malayja, one of the regulars in our Saturday Club programs, went on the local news this morning to conduct a science experiment. We’re all familiar with what happens when vinegar and baking soda come together, but she showed us a fun twist with a hand that gets tired from waving long after we do!

“I think it just shows that anything is possible,” said Malayja’s cane travel instructor—and Louisiana Tech Institute on Blindness graduate Sheena Manuel, NCLB.

For Malayja, the experience was fun…though intimidating.

“I was a little bit nervous to be on TV in front of all those people,” she said. “But it was fun to show what carbon dioxide can do.”
