We have always believed that innovation is the key to Africa’s growth and development,so we happy to share stories around it.
Recently some Senegalese students designed an innovative car called Auto Gazelle and we love the concept.
They are students of Polytechnic School of Dakar (ESP), their decision create this innovative car sprang up after they were challenged to build a “utility car, which rolls without fuel, without making noise and that does not pollute the environment”.
With their creative thinking and the knowledge acquired from their school teaching on courses in the fields of science, technology and management, these creative students were able to put together a solar car “Auto gazelle”. Still in the state of model, “Auto-gazelle” could very soon roll in Senegal.
