The Builders’ Challenge

September 25 at 9:00 am - October 18 at 2:00 pm

We need to design next generation tools and equipment for the agricultural/food industry.
Our intention is to bring together (on one platform) engineers, farmers, architects, growers, students, agronomists, fabricators, and all kinds of makers with the goal of building highly functional and environmentally friendly tools that can solve real food production problems and spur economic prosperity and drastically reduce unemployment and poverty drastically.
What is the aim of The Builders’ Challenge?

Build highly functional and environmentally friendly agricultural and food production tools to support small, medium and big size producers.

To actually start the revolution of high quality farm tools produced in Africa and exported to the rest of the world

To encourage the concept of making and building

To take you through a practical learning session on how to move from idea to implementation

See your school thesis and research work come to live
