Integration of computers in equipment and industrial processes
Gepost op 2019-12-03 - Label: CiTA

This year and next year the focus within the CiTA project will be the introduction and further implementation in the curriculum of the integration of computers in equipment and industrial processes. The curriculum innovation will take place within three universities: the University of Nairobi (department of Electronic Engineering), the University of Zambia (department of Electronic Engineering and departments in application areas) and the Kapassa Makassa University in the north of Zambia (department of Science and ICT in Education).

Water project
Gepost op 2019-05-28 - Label: Algemeen

The shortage of water became more and more of a problem. Due to the growing population with, in relation to that, the growth of the primary and secondary school and the clinic, the existing water supply had become insufficient. Therefore, a project has been carried out in which the people themselves have built a new water system.

Technological education
Gepost op 2019-03-18 - Label: CiTA

The objective of the CiTA project is to give pupils and student an opportunity to get in touch with technique and engineering. And when we say engineering these days we mean electrical and mechanical devices controlled by (simple) computers. These devices can vary from all kind of sensors to simple mechanical devices like moving robot arms. That sounds like a substantial investment but prices in this area have dropped tremendously during the last few years: since computers are usually already available in Secondary Schools, a complete laboratory set for two students can be made available for between 50 and 100 euro (between 60 and 120 dollar). And most of the students are really eager to experiment with this equipment. However, some guidance and support will always be needed at this level, even for the most motivated students and even when detailed handouts are available. And this is just the problem in many Secondary Schools. Staff is often not familiar with the topic and, if they are, there is a good chance they leave to industry. That is to a large extend why the recent introduction at two schools did not have the success that was hoped for.
