ImpactLabs, an initiative launched by students and graduates of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University, is returning to Nigeria for the second year and will partner with the Technology Innovation Lab (TIL) at Bells University of Technology in Ogun State. There will be free skills training for secondary school students and undergraduates which will run under the theme, “Health, Sanitation, and Agriculture”. “We bring varied expertise in engineering design, software, and biomedical engineering. During the 2015 summer camp, the participants will gain hands-on experience combining techniques in software and engineering design into real-life technology in health, agriculture and/or sanitation. These projects are expected to be of immediate impact and relevance to a community in Nigeria,” ImpactLabs said. Participants must be resident in Nigeria and must be in a Senior secondary school or not farther than their third year in the university. The programme is free and the organisers will provide accommodation for participants throughout the duration of the training. Participants will however cover their transportation fee from their hostels to the programme venue. The programme will run from August 10 to 21, 2015 at Bells University, Ota, Ogun State. Interested participants can register here.       Source: and Photo credit:
