Kitale National Polytechnic Emerge Best In Science And Innovation Competition.
The 11th science and innovation competition, held at the Kiptargon Technical Training Institute in Nakuru County, was won by Kitale National Polytechnic.
The Trans Nzoia County-based institution won awards in six of the exhibition’s twelve categories, including first place in the food and beverage category with the Manga melting point.
“An automotive counter and room light control which detects how many people get in and out of a room at any given moment and after that it shuts took position one in the electronic category,” said Head of Department Research and Innovations at the Polytechnic Mr Tom Oswago.
A seven-day changer decker paper won first place in the Clothing and Textile Category, the KNP sanitiser won first place in the Applied Science Category, and a four-in-one Covid 19 furniture took second and first place in the record categories.
“The winning categories will proceed to the national event which is slated for May. We call on sponsors and the authorities to develop policies that will guide the running and commercialization of the innovations,” he said.

Oswago cited the commercialization barrier as a major impediment to student innovations in institutions, impeding their development through incubation, which is part of the Vision 2030.
“That is why we are asking the Ministry of Education to put in place a policy that will help the various institutions to commercialize their innovations saying research and innovation is the way to go if the country needs to achieve the vision 2030,” he said.
Mr John Otieno Akola, Principal of Kitale National Polytechnic, stated that the institution has done exceptionally well in research and academics and is now investing in the promotion of innovation and creativity among its trainees.
Otieno encouraged qualified youth to enroll in polytechnics to gain technical skills in a variety of fields, allowing them to launch their own entrepreneurial ventures that do not rely on formal employment.

“We are partnering with the Canadian and German governments so that they support the co-operative programme where 50% of the training is class-based and 50% is industry-based.
“This is one of the best methods of training to address the mismatch between what the industry wants and what we train,” he said.
