Geofrey commented on Makerspace and engineering teaching laboratory for youth

Hi Alphonse,

Your idea is great, I am very interested in it. The idea that students will have a low cost education that enables them to work on practical experiments is what everybody is looking for and its something that is still a challenge not in this region but generally in Africa. In developing and emerging economies they suffer in both the quality and cost of education. Specifically in sciences, students tend to rely on theoretical learning due to insufficient labaratory resources to do practicals. I have a total faith and hope that if you implement this idea will serve so many young people within sub saharan world and enable them to be creative as they pursue there dreams. "Education is the most powerful weapon you can you use to change the world" was said by Nelson Mandela, so there you go and you are on the right pace to bring a solution to the problem that has affected so many economies particularly in Rwanda and Sub saharan Africa in general.
