This is what I call innovation! Urine Powered Generator

I commend these young ladies for their inventions. The death of five people sparkled an innovation idea within them to make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else.

I know this isn’t a new story but it’s an encouraging one. Despite the hackers and naysayers they did it.

Does the Nigerian Girls’ Science Fair Project Turn One Liter of Urine Into Six Hours of Electricity?

A urine-powered generator built by a team of high school girls at Maker Faire Africa in 2012 is pretty slick, but the technology is not as game-changing as numerous online images have suggested.

I wouldn’t say they were trying to change the game. I believe they were trying to change their own lives and community but they received a lot of recognition for their invention whether it was a success on a large scale or not. 

On 6 November 6 2012, Maker Faire Africa, a science fair and festival, posted a story about one of the projects featured in that year’s festival, a urine-powered generator created by four 14- and 15-year-old students:

Possibly one of the more unexpected products at Maker Faire Africa this year in Lagos is a urine powered generator, created by four girls. The girls are Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15). One liter of urine gives you six hours of electricity.

I haven’t heard rather or not the invention changed the world’s way of producing energy. Not that I expected it to-at least not a on a huge scale. But I hope it changed the lives of small villages who do not have access to the luxury we all take for granted.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
