Nigerian skill accelerator, ImpactLabs,has begun taking applications for the second edition of its ImpactLabs summer workshop. This year, ImpactLabs, is collaborating with the Bells University of Technology’s Technology Innovation Lab to host the event.

With the theme “Health, Sanitation, and Agriculture,” the skill accelerator aims to provide participants with hands-on knowledge in engineering design, software, and biomedical engineering.

“During the 2015 summer camp, the participants will gain hands-on experience combining techniques in software and engineering design into real-life technology in health, agriculture and/or sanitation. These projects are expected to be of immediate impact and relevance to a community in Nigeria”, the announcement reads.

Participants must be resident in Nigeria and must be in a Senior secondary school or not farther than their third year in the university. The program is free and the organisers will provide accommodation for participants throughout the duration of the training. Participants will however cover their transportation fee from their hostels to the program venue.

ImpactLabs is a group of Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduates creating impact-driven learning in African universities.

The program will run from August 10 to 21, 2015 at Bells University, Ota, Ogun State.
