Meet fifteen-year-old Hope Emmanuel Frank from Akwa Ibom who has been wowing people with his rare engineering talents.

Hope uses woods , condemned laptop batteries and syringe to make an excavator and a dump truck , and a change over switch to control them.

In this BBC Pidgin One Minute Story, Hope said he dreams of becoming one of world's great inventors like Nicholas Tesla and Michael Faraday .



He also said :

“When people see me on the street operating my excavator and tipper, they are usually surprised. Some of them dash me money"

“The first time I saw an excavator, I thought, oh, let me just try this. I did the skeleton part and the flex, but it was not all that enough, like how to get them to move was my problem. I then thought of the idea of using a drip-set replacing the hose in the real excavator and the syringe works as the boom.

“For the tipper remote, I used a change over-switch for the forward and backward drive. I used condemned laptop batteries as my source of power in the tipper.”



The teenager also added that he plans on working on a helicopter flown with a wireless remote.

“My next project will be a payloader that can work and a helicopter that will fly with wireless remote. In the future, I want to be one of the world’s greatest inventors"

Ingenuity. What happened to catch them young? If this cadre of students are encouraged, they will lead Nigeria somewhere in the near future.
