Hey OpenIDEO Community,

Something happened at Kepler Tech Lab this week! Check it out at http://bit.ly/2inI18U of Kepler Tech Lab. The same article can be found at the Stanford FabLearn http://bit.ly/2jifelN and my own LinkedIn http://bit.ly/2iT74Nj. Innovate, Make, Educate is our motto!

Enjoy as you read our impact!

Hi Chris,

Thanks for bring this to my attention. It's true we are expanding our curriculum really quick because we want many number of students to benefit the lab. As you know, our space is not big enough to host more than 25 students at time and have enough space for materials and equipment. This is the challenge we have been facing for ~2 yrs and to address it we have made segmentations among our beneficiaries. Each group of students have their own curriculum based on what they can learn and make easily, not to forget their experience.

For long-term goals, we envision to open multiple labs in the country, Rwanda, so that we can have variety of students from different corners of the country. In the meantime, however, once we get further support, we are planning on moving the lab to a bigger space where we can install many equipment and have many people use them for creations, innovations, and making.

Hopefully, I've answered your Q.

Thanks,
Alpha

Wow, Christophe, I've heard your experience that you have been using the best of knowledge and skills you earned from the lab in your work at OffGrid Electric. Thanks for sharing how the lab has changed your work experience. Anything we can do to impact large number of youth in Rwanda? Your recommendation are highly needed and might be appreciated.

Thanks a lot!
