DEXT TECHNOLOGIES
Practical science educations in a box
We are taking a step beyond giving every school a science lab; we are going to give every student their own science lab! Imagine every student owning a science lab that contained components and apparatus needed for experiments. Imagine this science lab is so affordable, every student can have one. Now imagine, if this science lab was small enough to fit in every student’s bag! Imagine what science education will become. Using innovative design and manufacturing methods, we have created it, we call it the Science Set and it will change everything!
INVENT ELECTRONICS
Electronic Components
Invent Electronics is a retailer of electronic components, Arduinos, Raspberry Pi’s, microcontroller kits and more. Invent exists to make it easier for students, makers, educators and hobbyists to quickly find and purchase electronic components or their projects locally.
FAITH TECH GHANA
Drip irrigation & mulch technology to grow vegetables with little water
Inspired by the lack of fresh vegetables during the dry season, Faith Tech Ghana are currently at the product development phase, running field trials (literally!) for different nozzle configurations to maximize the efficiency of their low cost, locally-manufacturable drip irrigation system. They combine it with a special mulch that further reduces the amount of water needed. This is vitally important technology where imported irrigation systems are beyond the purchasing power of smallholders, and the rainy seasons are getting shorter and less reliable.
