Killian Deku of Ghana, Suprio Das of India, Lara Stupin of the US and Bernard Kiwia from Tanzania created simple mechanisms for auto cleansing of water using chlorine.

Daniel Kanter, a chief in a Ghanian village, worked with the IDDS group to create a device to extract the shea butter.

Bernard Kiwia of Tanzania, a bicycle mechanic, creates many tools from bicycle parts. This is his hacksaw creation.

A team from IDDS created a way to take old water bags and other plastic to create 3ply to 40ply plastic sheets. Many things can be made from this, including shoes and bags.

Sham created this after looking at a medical pill dispenser.

Made by three 14 y/o girls in Nigeria

On September 2010 Mobile A2K takes part in Festivaletteratura 2010 in Mantova with three seminars.

 

Chiara Somajni, journalist who writes about creative and social use of digital technology, is hosting the seminar The disenchanted teacher. Rethinking education through technology.

 

Participants: Massimo Banzi, consultant, interactive design teacher and designer of Arduino; Mark Grimes, co-organizer of the Maker Faire Africa.

 

Prototypes and technological tools, created to re-think teaching methods and “teacher-student” interactions, are also at the heart of the programme.

The aim of a Maker Faire-like event is to create a space on the continent where Afrigadget-type innovations, inventions and initiatives can be sought, identified, brought to life, supported, amplified, propagated, etc. Maker Faire Africa asks the question, “What happens when you put the drivers of ingenious concepts from Mali with those from Ghana and Kenya, and add resources to the mix?”

A team from IDDS created a way to take old water bags and other plastic to create 3ply to 40ply plastic sheets. Many things can be made from this, including shoes and bags.
