With the current spate of suicides and the increasing rate of depression in the society, there’s every need to create technological solutions to address this public health emergency. Social media has not helped this issue. Ironically, I’m working on a project which will leverage the same social media to provide succour to mentally disturbed young persons.
With a maternal mortality ratio of 814 per 100,000 live births, Nigeria remains one of the very few dangerous countries where a woman can take a decision to be pregnant. There are a number of important interventions out there, most of them have not addressed some of the most critical causes of delays which result in death from pregnancy. So recently, I’ve initiated a solution for pregnant women in rural areas to help them overcome the delays of decision making, transportation to referral facility, and receiving care at the referral centre.
As STEM education increasingly becomes important for the work of the future, there’s now more clamour for experiential teaching and learning. Emphasis is now on development of soft skills such as communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity. This is why I have interest in developing a technology for project-based learning in order to rightly position teachers to raise kids who can grow with unfettered passion for STEM.
Ihcibo is an ideation game produced for early learners and young adults to engage their imaginations and ‘magically’ inflate their critical thinking skill, creativity and innovativeness.
Please, do let me know which of my projects you find interesting and wish to inquire about for some collaboration.
