Changing the Destiny of African Science Students through Robotics? | Solomon King | TEDxKampala
Solomon explains how Fundi Bots is using Robotics in African schools to transform science education from theory into a fun and practical experience that prepares students better for school, gives them career advantage and empowers them to be community changemakers.

Solomon King Benge is passionate about design, business and technology. His ambitions revolve around fostering ideas and building products that enhance our interaction with both the physical and digital worlds through computer user interfaces and electronic hardware.

In 2011, he founded Fundi Bots, a robotics non-profit that aims to promote better education experiences, improved career prospects and real-world technological advancement in African high schools through training and experimentation in robotics, embedded control and artificial intelligence recognized by Google through a Google RISE grant in 2012, the BBC, Voice of America and Wired Magazine UK.

Fundi Bots was selected as a 2014 Echoing Green Fellow and a 2014 Ashoka Fellow. Echoing Green and Ashoka Fellowships

Amazing video and amazing work they're doing at http://fundibots.org.

But they should've made the donation program more easy. I do like to donate this. I will contact them on this.

Titan Of Trade: Tony Elumelu’s Drive to Empower Africa and Minority Entrepreneurs
Billionaire to launch $100 million program for African & African-American entrepreneurs
He also says the time to criticize the U.S. for not engaging the continent sooner has passed.

“We should welcome the fact that the journey has finally begun. I like the nature of the imagined engagement between Africa and America. President Obama’s visit to Africa last year was the starting point,” Elumelu says. “The fact that they have realized the need to engage with Africa at the scale and magnitude that they are going about it now is welcome.”

His foundation is also playing its part in reaching out to minority and women-owned businesses. “The Tony Elumelu Foundation will launch an entrepreneurship program with 100 million dollars that will touch 10,000 entrepreneurs across Africa and the United States,” he says. “We will train and mentor them and create platforms for them to have commercial business engagements.”

To expatiate, Elumelu notes how much preparation, time, and money it took to host an event of such scale and magnitude in the capital city of the United States. “It’s almost like everything stopped momentarily or temporarily for this event,” he says. “It has a signalling impact. It says to all policy makers in America, and those not on the leadership level that Africa is important to this country. Even the U.S. Secretary of State was in attendance considering the situation in the middle east reaching a boiling point.”

Elumelu and Obama share a singular belief: If access to electricity is provided to Sub-Saharan Africa, it would accelerate development across the region. It is a belief that has propelled him to make several speeches on the matter including addressing the United Nations and the United States Congress.

Addressing the audience and U.S. House Representatives at an event at the summit hosted by Congressman Gregory Meeks titled, “A Dialogue With African CEOs” that brought together women and minority business owners, CEOs from across Africa and U.S., and SME entrepreneurs, Elumelu said he understood that members of Congress had genuine differences, but he urged them to consider a more dire big picture.

An African refuting the often repeated lie that Africans don't want to work with Africans, well here is one who does and putting his money where his mouth is.

@ Brada-Anansi, I love the Black Enterprise magazine. It's very helpful and inspiring.

I never really understood why the Black Engineer, BEYA. Segregated itself from Africa. Every year hundreds of inventions and innovations are being made, of which some are so important for large industries. But it doesn't benefit African people, but it benefits the West only. And in return you'll get the middle finger.

Perhaps a new approach is needed hopefully Africa's Billionaires will seek them out and employ them back on the mother continent, do some technology transfer and have markets back into their communities benefit not only in the USA proper but the Isle and south of the U.S border proper, the sticky situation their labor if Iam reading right is owned by Lockheed Martin a defense contractor, that would be a problem regarding national secrets and all.

That sounds like a great and local idea. It is intellectuals who inspire common people. But I see what you mean on the Lockheed Martin. It's a bit Matrix style with substratums.

Africa had civilizations that surpassed and was on par with Europe during the Dark ages and previous to that; in terms of civilization, wealth, science, and technology and Africa even had it's own ink road like the Silk road in Asia.

I know there have been multiple posts on this subject; could someone here link me to those posts here and elsewhere? How come so little is known about them?

Here is one.

Interesting artifact at Thulamela possible contact with far away West Africa.
Gongs originate from Ghana in western Africa where they are apparently used as a kind of musical instrument. They can also be used as bells on a bull. In southern Africa they have been known to be a status symbol. A single gong was found at Great Zimbabwe. The one at Thulamela was found in Enclosure 13, the captain's area. This find is almost as important as the gold. The gongs are made from two triangular pieces of metal which are "braced" together at the edges. This technique was not used in southern Africa and shows that trade-links spanning the continent already existed at an very early stage. The site as a whole was first occupied by the middle of the 13th century. By the middle of the 15th century the site was densely populated and this continued until the middle of the 17th century. This as well as the building style, the gold and pottery link the site with Mapungubwe and Great Zimbabwe. The gongs extend this link even further into Western Africa.
