Three Nigerian Teams Emerged Tops At The China Internet Plus Awards

Three Nigerian teams have shone brightly at the China “Internet Plus” University Graduates Innovation and Entrepreneurship award held in Zhejiang University recently.

Over 8,000 participants from different colleges and universities from all around the world gathered to showcase their innovative ideas.

The competition was set up in four sections, including Higher Education Track, Vocational Education Track, International Track and Germination Track (which was specifically open for high school students) to better achieve five major goals of “more comprehensive, more international, more China, more educational, more innovation”.

The competition was held from October 12-15 and several groups presented their innovative inventions including a Nigerian team from Osun State University who presented a project about development of road.

It focused on a recycling agent using waste cooking oil, as its application was on turning waste into treasure.

They scored 86.8 percent, making them one of the high scorers.

Another team from Nigeria, “AF. Inspirant Talent” aims at a China-African student sharing practice platform. Back in June, the award attracted 4.57 million graduates and 1.9 million teams from 124 countries and regions on five continents to engage in the competition and since then it has become the most influential innovative and entrepreneurial event for all colleges and universities in China.

In this round of the competition, there were 61 gold awards in Higher Education Track and 20 innovation potential awards in Germination Track. The remaining tracks won 15 gold awards. Only four teams entered the championship competition on October 14th.

At the end of the competition, Tsinghua University won the championship, and “[email protected]” project cooperated by Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember and Zhejiang University of Technology got the third place. Meanwhile, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) continues to record giant strides in its operations, especially with regard to female officers.

Already, another NAF female fighter pilot is grabbing the headlines with her achievements at the 403 Flying Training School (403 FTS) in Kano state.

Her name is Flying Officer Oluwadamilare Oke and she is one of the 15 student pilots undergoing Basic Flying Training at the school.

She has successfully conducted her first solo flight on the L-39ZA Jet Trainer Aircraft and she is the first female pilot to do so in the history of 403 FTS.
