Last year, BN brought you the the incredible story of 4 secondary school girls who stepped out of the box of convention by being innovative. The teenagers came up with the idea of the urine-powered generator and we were thoroughly impressed.

As the world celebrates Children’s Day, NdaniTV turns its spotlight on these girls to show their ingenuity.
After reading about a family who died in their house from a generator’s carbon monoxide fumes, Adebola Duro-Aina was inspired to do something about it. She enlisted three friends – Oluwatoyin Faleke, Eniola Bello and Abiola Akindele, all students between 14 and 15 years old in her science class – to help her find a solution to the problem.

The team decided to design a generator that ran off an alternative fuel that wouldn’t harm users, and so began the tale of how four teenage girls in Nigeria invented a urine-powered generator to create better – and safer – access to electricity.

    This is the kind of stuff I was talking about when I commented on the “Let’s take a hold of our community….” article! I am in awe of these young ladies! Amazing! Nigerians are so resourceful! We are to a fault though….We just tend to manage. If it weren’t for the inadequacy and shortcomings of NEPA, would there be any need for these girls to resort to using urine( of all things….sad) to generate power? BADLUCK! Are you seeing this?! Instead of governmental officials gifting musicians Prados and such, maybe they should pay attention to investing in the youth…..Hmmmm…..Just a thought. *yimu*

    Glad to see young african girls not afraid of science/engineering and actually becoming inventors. Even if it’s urine, they’ve really tried. Great work!!!!!

    These young ladies have a great path ahead of them (Lord, please keep the light in them blazing). And I loved how confident and well-spoken they are Although, BN you referred to only 4 girls in your blurb above but there were 5 of them in the video…

    Truly, we all have a duty to nurture the dreams of this next generation because they could very possibly bring that permanent change we’ve been calling for in our dear Nigeria. Who knows the amount of Davids, Gideons, Joshuas & Moses who’ve already been gifted with a calling to lead their country as we speak?

    The best thing about these girls is how critically they think. This is a component of education that’s often missed in African schools. Whatever their teachers are doing is working. Kudos to them and their parents/mentors. I’m very heartened by their feat!

    Hmmm. These people don turn us mumu. you mean these four apparently uninterested pupils innovated this? Nah…people dont look away when their innovation is being discussed. Next time you want to fake something, put ‘body language’ into consideration. I wish it was true, but no, i have to keep hoping we record such feat in our country. This one na lie dey der.
