12-Year-Old Kenyan Teacher Makes Ingenious Invention In Computers And Robotics.
When Kenya and the rest of the world were frantically attempting to recover from a pandemic, PATRICK NJOROGE WACHIRA from Nairobi, Kenya was busy collecting and repairing unused, old, or broken laptops for kids his age so that they could access online education.
Patrick was only 11 years old when he decided to launch the PNW Innovations Program.
He was aware of the need to educate and upskill the children so that they would not be left out of regular schooling after the pandemic.
Patrick began with small knowledge sharing sessions with his neighbourhood children and then expanded to various underprivileged communities in and around his town.
Patrick Njoroge Wachira, a 12-year-old now, and a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) has piqued the interest of many in the computer and robotics fields with his ingenious invention.
The CEO, who now tutors Kenyan children and university students, established his own PNW Innovation Programme, through which he provides free lessons.
Wachira stated in an interview with Khaleej Times, a UAE-based media outlet, that he created a revolutionary tool for sensing sewerage blockages.
The new project is linked to a smartphone, allowing users to detect sewerage blockages and sludges in order to make timely repairs.
His invention piqued the interest of industry titans, and he was invited to showcase it at the Expo 2020 in Dubai.
“I created a prototype, which could be fine-tuned over the years. It also detects sludges, and toxic chemicals and sends an alarm to the control room. It helps the authorities to detect the sludges and blockages early enough and undertake preventive measures with less human effort.
“If I get a chance to implement it in the UAE, I will be happy to collaborate with any of the civic bodies in the Emirates, be it Dubai Municipality or Sharjah Municipality to implement this robotic solution,“ he told the publication.

His interest in computers began when he was 10 years old, and he has since received training from a robotics training institute in Dubai.
The CEO has embarked on a free training program for university students and Kenyan children through PNW in an effort to increase scientific literacy across the country.
A truck equipped with a robotics laboratory is also being prepared for him to aid in his mobility, and the project is set to begin in May.
During the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, he kept himself busy with computer repairs, which piqued his interest.
Since then, he has learned about robotics and other Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines from Unique World Robotics in Dubai and STEM.org.
"He comes up with his creative ideas ever since he got introduced to advanced robotics, which led him to develop a Sewage Robot. It was primarily designed to assist in the cleaning of sewage by detecting sewage gas and other waste through sensors and controllers.

"He developed a prototype and successfully tested its efficacy under various conditions. While up-skilling himself, Patrick continued his efforts to support the youth by training schoolers, non-schoolers and even university students.” Said Bansan Thomas George, Chief Executive Officer at Unique World Robotics LLC, Dubai Entrepreneur.
