Posted by Read 2 Comments

We attended the Research & Intellectual Expo organised by Zimbabwe’s Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education. There was much to see and learn. Some of it information technology related and the other technology applications in Agriculture, food sciences and such.

We post below a few pictures we took at the event. We will follow up some interesting projects we saw at the event and post what we find here.
