The education system, to most Ghanaians, does not favour people with extraordinary talents due to its heavy dependence on the theoretical aspects. However, students from various schools and in various stages have been unearthed for their genius brains.
Over the years, the application of scientific knowledge is on the rise to challenge the aforementioned perception of Ghanaians.
A student of the Takoradi Technical Institute, Abraham Essilfie who studies Automotive Engineering has designed an excavator that uses water-based hydraulics systems to operate.
Essilfie made his excavator from cartons, tubes and syringes not forgetting the main element that makes it work — water. No cables or wires were used in his project as the excavator uses the pressure created by the syringes
The host of the YouTube channel High School Africa said he got a call from the authorities of the school to go over and witness the amazing work of Essilfie. Essilfie operated the excavator to the amazement of Goshens, the host who used his platform to call on investors.
Essilfie says he is not done yet as he intends to create a track for his invention to aid its movement.

Meanwhile, 10-year-old Desmond Amonoo also designed a miniature stadium he has christened as the Black Star Stadium.
Amonoo who has dreams to become one of the world’s best architects in the near future also has other models such as the Axim Sports Complex. He told a local FM station that he found his talent at the age of two years.
Desmond’s Black Star Stadium model is shaped in the form of a star and has Ghana’s national colours for its interior.
The model stadium did not miss certain details like emergency services as spots for an ambulance and fire tenders were provided. Teams will also have designated places for their buses to be stationed during games.
His father, Mr. Ekow Amonoo admits that funding his son’s dreams sometimes becomes too herculean a task since the materials needed for the projects don’t come cheap.
