Some of you may know that yesterday, the FIRST LEGO League initiative held a Robotics and Science tournament in Harare where 10 schools, most of them primary, entered. The whole initiative is a fun way to great kids interested in science and technology in the hopes they pursue it as a career in future. Having spent much of my day there, I can say there’s been nothing as refreshing in terms of the positive outlook of Zim’s future it gives, as this.
