Two students of Doregos Private Academy, Lagos, Olajumoke Adebayo and Eniola Adewale has invented a fueless power generator. The invention was showcased at the Pan-African Women Inventors & Innovators Network Symposium, Expo & Awards at the ECOWAS Commission in Abuja.

The  event titled Innovative Women with Innovative Solutions for Africa  was witnessed by the minister of Information and Communication, Prof. Dora Akunyili, and  Mrs Josephine Anenih., minister  for Women Affairs, It was indeed a commemdation galore for the students as other youths were advised to emulate them.
The students both in SS3 and members of the Junior Engineers, Technicians & Scientists (JETS Club) said the idea was born out of a need to minimize the cost spent of the usage of fuel generators as an average amount of N10, 000 is spent on fuel weekly adding that their invention does not emit any toxic and poses no threat to human health.

According to them,  the idea was conceived through the JETS club to which they belonged as coordinators.  “We used magnetic flux to generate electricity which the conventional magnet cannot. It consists of a shaf fixed with eight neodymium magnets which rotates when an initial current is passed through the field coils. The electricity is then passed from the copper coil to a step-up transformer which steps up the power voltage from 32 volts to 200 volts to power the output of the generator”. They said.
The young stars noted that JETS club afforded them a vantage avenue to think, analyze and work on scientific research before  embarking  on the project based on their scientific knowledge that a generator can still exist without using fuel. They stated that it is possible to produce cheaper and more dependable source of electricity for both domestic and industrial use.

The invention  the students admitted was not an easy scale through as they had to make several presentations and seminars on the project to the audience comprising their teachers and the school authority before they were finally selected to defend the significance of their project.
Both students hinted that they intend pursuing a career in Engineering in the near future,  to develop a bigger generator that can power the whole school.” This is just a prototype to showcase our endowments and potentials.”
The materials used for the invention according to them are a locally fabricated step up transformer, capacitors with total capacity 400,000 uf, neodymium magnets, copper wires transistors battery, oscillators, bulbs and several other materials.

The coordinator Junior Engineers, Technicians & Scientists (JETS Club), of the academy, Mr Lawal Olaide  noted that  the problem of high cost  usage of fuel generators and unemployment in the country coupled with the burning desires of the students to make something unusual was responsible for the feat. according to him, “the main objective of this project is to produce a generator that can produce cheap and sustainable electric power to solve the problem of power supply permanently in the country, adding that  it is also of great importance as it does not emit any waste (toxic) products as with conventional generators”.
The Principal of the academy, Mr Jide Adebayo said the school is committed to its mission of creating a learning environment which maximizes individuals’ potentials to meet the challenges of education and life.

NORMAL SENSIBLE FOCUS GOVERNMENT WILL SHOW INTEREST
IN SUCH A PROJECT AND EVEN ADVANCE THE COURSE OF
THIS YOUNG TALENTED STUDENT.

BUT IT'S A PITY THEY ARE IN THE WRONG PART OF THE GLOBE!!!
MAYBE YOU SHOULD DEVELOP A WAY OF STEALING STATE FUND
WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF CIA, INTERPOL AND EFCC.

ON A SERIOUS NOTE, WELL DONE. DONT STOP. MARCH AHEAD.
IF NAIJA DONT REWARD YOU
INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITIES ARE WATCHING YOU
AND IF THEY OFFER YOU A CHANCE GRAB IT !!!!

An event such as this, and there's no video to back the facts up ? Even with the presence of those ministers ?...c'mon...I ain't no enemy of progress...but I'm definitely doubtful about this news...definitely didn't happen...what news paper carried it in Naija ?...any tv station ?...try another one.
