YM Lab2 Makerspace Upgrade

YM Lab2 Makerspace Upgrade

Published on November 22nd

The YM Lab 2, which initially had a 35-seater ICT lab, has now been upgraded to include a Makerspace for robotics. The lab is located in Gbawe, Accra and in a school  named L&A Memorial Academy. It is the second YM Lab deployed under the YM Labs Program and was deployed in 2018. 

The makerspace will be used for Robotics, Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and 3D Printing learning. This is meant to give students a hands-on experience of advanced technology away from the theoretical practice of ICT Learning. The upgraded lab will be serving students of L&A school and other schools within the Gbawe community at entirely no cost. 

The introduction of the makerspace as part of the Yamoransa Model is to advance computer programming and robotics learning in Ghana. This will equip students with adequate skills to influence their career paths and make them efficient in the world market.

The Makerspace upgrade was officially opened on November 21, 2020 within the company of Dr. Deborah Rose and Mr. Japhet Aryiku, President and Executive Director for Helping Africa Foundation respectively among other friends including Mr. Mark Dollhopf, President of the Yale Alumni Association. 

The event highlighted the importance of robotics and computer programming as an added advantage to students in the school and nearby communities. The students also highlighted their enthusiasm to have the makerspace as an addition to what they already had. This addition will enhance their learning experiences and provide more avenues for them to upgrade their knowledge.
