Burgersfort, Praktiseer

Gift Dibakoana, Leolo High School’s top young scientist of the year, created a digital multi-task desk to reduce crime on school grounds.


The 20-year-old clarified that he designed a digital desk to address several issues in school classrooms, including a recent rash of attacks involving students who carry weapons to school and stationery that is routinely stolen without a trace.


According to Gift, the desk has a steel sensor that will automatically notify the principal about the detected weapon in the desk and include the desk number as well as the name of the student occupying the desk.


The steel sensor will detect weapons in the desks of some of the students that refuse to be searched, which is a paramount function of the desk.


“The table has book storage, comfortable seat, calculator, a fan and also a water tap attached to it and a bottle of sanitizer. Meanwhile, the weapon sensor will identify unwanted devices on the desk,” he said.


This young man from Burgersfort, Praktiseer further said that the water tap will assist pupils who use going out to drink water as an excuse to escape lessons. Meanwhile, the book storage will be sufficient for the pupils because most of them carry their bags along during lunch to keep their stationery safe but with the locker on the book storage, they won’t have to worry about that anymore.


Gift is looking for investments for his innovation project and hopes he will get attention and exposure from the government. He believes this will make learning so much easier and more fun.
