St Peter’s Mbare science student creates mobile app

 

unnamedA science form four student at St Peter's Secondary School in Mbare has created a mobile application, Paivapo, which seeks to address issues of health and moral education created by the intergenerational gap between young people and parents.

Letitia Vanganai, a student and resident of Mbare presented her mind blowing educational application at the school's Science displays on the 13th of March.

The application, she explained, integrates technology and traditional ways of educating young people on health and moral issues.

"These days some children find themselves with loose morals because they are not accorded enough time to discuss their challenges with parents or elderly people. So this application helps to interpret good moral values as was the case with folk tales," said Letitia.

Paivapo features interactive portals such as Tete (aunt), Gogo (grandmother), Books, Proverbs and Nyambo where young people can interact confidentially with the elderly and content material that enhances their understanding and appreciation of moral values.

"Though it was tough to create this application, I believed in myself that I can do it. I urge other girls to always try to do something which is beyond their expectants," said Vanganai.

Among the great displays were electronic miniatures such as fish pond monitoring system, security alarms, new model traffic lights, security sensors modelled for centres like hospitals, and schools.

Most of the displays feature members of the Electronics club, an initiative of Mbare parish priest, Fr Isaac Fernandes SJ.
The club is committed to providing a complete educational experience for students, which includes using technology to help them reach their maximum learning potential.
