During COVID, innovative students at a Nigerian school design and build a robot health assistant, with great success.
When COVID-19 hit, an enterprising group of students in Abuja, Nigeria used their robotics class to design and build a simple robot to reduce interpersonal contact in hospitals.
Using only scraps they found in the classroom, they each contributed the ideas, concept, mechanics and AI elements of their “Mairabot” robot, which received praise from health officials and their teachers alike.
