TWENDE FLAGSHIP PROGRAM YIELDED FOUR NEW PROJECT DESIGNS The programme (if you are British) or program (If you are American) is called JTP - Jamii (Community) Technology Program.
This year it ran from June 6th to August 30th, although some of the innovators are continuing to work on polishing their prototypes. The four designs it created are:
A press for making interlocking earth bricks
A automatic ugali-making machine
A banana peeling machine
A groundnut dehusking machine.
1. Innovation Club with the school of St. Jude We are pleased to announce our partnership with the School of St jude to run an innovation club with 46 students on 2 campuses. We expect exciting technologies that solve community challenges from the students.
2. New Program Alert! Another development, in the “Catch Em Young” vein is the design of a program for graduates of primary schools – whether they are going to carry on to secondary education. We have a new mission partner “WAGI Labs” in the US who are interested in our programs and together we have been designing an innovation program for standard seven graduates.
3. Incubating 3 innovators with COSTECH We have an understanding with the Commision for Science and Technology to incubate 3 local innovators as a follow-up on their win of a grant to develop their technologies into finished and scalable products.
