A 12 YEAR OLD NIGERIAN GIRL INVENTS AN APP TO HELP STUDENTS FIND THEIR WAY HOME.
We live in an age where technology is allowing us to create things we couldn't couple years ago. From new types of phones, to new apps and even to new types of businesses. Innovation is the new way of life.
There are variety of ways we can utilize the availability of technology and 12 year old Tomison Ogunnubi has done just that by creating an app called 'My Locator' which is meant to help the users who are basically school pupils know their location, find it on the map and be properly directed to their destination. The app was designed with schools kids in mind to enable them accurately find their way home if need be. Genius right?
Tomison, a student of Vivian Fowler Memorial college, Lagos was able to achieve this through the help of her school and the New Horizon computer learning center. We get impressed when new helpful apps are made but we're even more impressed when we see young minds creating amazing things.
So what does this tell us? Apart from the fact that youngins are becoming more innovative, it is now evident that there are myriads of avenues for young people to easily create things that are beneficial to the society. Gone are the days when young Africans had no access to innovation. Now, platforms like the New Horizon computer learning center are available to foster creativity. If this platform keeps running and more of it are established in different parts of the continent, then more young people will be able to influence technology and, Africa will come tops on the scale of tech geniuses.
