After Hurricane Sandy ripped the East Coast to shreds, thousands of people were left stranded without power, shelter and in some cases, hope. These unlucky individuals could have used a recent idea created by four african teenage girls. Fourteen-year-olds Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and 15-year-old Bello Eniola showcased their unique invention, a urine-powered generator, at the Maker Faire Africa earlier this month. The annual event, which was held in Lagos, Nigeria this year, gathers the small Einstein's throughout Africa together for a look at ideas that may help shape the future of their continent.
