On the first leg of the Wandering Engineer journey I visited eight incredible projects in Kenya and Tanzania that are using science and technology to improve the lives of thousands of people. Just look at how many different aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths can be found in these exciting projects!
Designs and manufactures efficient and safe stoves for use in the slums in Africa, saving fuel and lives.
Trains rats to detect landmines and tuberculosis to save lives and reduce suffering.
Safely collects human waste and recycles it to create both plant fertiliser and animal food.
Solves unique challenges using 3D printing and inspires children to think about how they can use this technology.
Uses solar power to generate clean drinking water for isolated communities.
Delivers safe drinking water to Kenyan slum residents and creates a sustainable and empowering business model.
Improves safety and security in the slums by creating an affordable fireproof housing construction method.
Teaches coding skills to kids to ensure they can get competitive jobs.
