In the Smartness We Invest
r. Abdalbasit , Smart Care Tech (SCT) Founder
The INVOSEED Competition is the premier All-African competition, which brings together middle, high school, and university robotics teams to participate in a competition around a challenge based on a real-world topic relevant to science and the sustainable development of Africa. Teams are judged on designs, poster and oral presentations, as well as, Science and technology . The goal of the program is to inspire young Africans while promoting STEM education within the African community. The objectives are to provide:
- Better understanding of how STEM is used to solve real-world problems
- Early engagement of young girls and boys in STEM
- And inspiring young Africans to be science and technology leaders
2. INVOSEED Competition
According to the UN, the world became predominantly urban in the last decade; largely due to the extreme accelerated urbanization process of emerging economies. The development of future modern and smart African cities is essential for the sustained growth of African economies and the well-being of their citizens. INVOSEED Competition
challenges African students to devise solutions for the planning, design, management and transformation of future African cities in an increasingly complex urban environment using science and technology: Iota, data science, data visualization & simulation (e.g., Augmented and Virtual Reality), citizen design & cognitive computing, Artificial Intelligence, driverless cars, smart transportation, responsive and reconfigurable architecture, and smart energy.
We have Over 60 member teams and 350 from across 20 African countries (e.g., Tanzania, Mali, Lesotho, Mauritania, Benin, Uganda, Kenya, Botswana, Rwanda, Senegal, Cameroon, Nigeria, Gambia, Niger, Chad, Burundi, South Africa, Soudan, Ivory Coast, Morocco, and Ghana) will take part in INVOSEED Competition . Teams between 4-8 students will choose to compete in one of the following categories: TECH (Middle School), STARS (High School), MAKERS (High School), Researchers and inventors and ENGINEERS (University) Leagues .
