This year’s Northern Zone Renewable energy challenge had the greatest performance from Ampem Nananom students from Gyaama Pensan Senior High School/Technical School.
The school is located in Aboaso, Kwabre East District in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. The Zonal Renewable Energy Challenge showcased different innovative technologies produced locally by students in senior high school.
One school representation from eight regions took turns explaining realistic and hands-on solutions to Ghana’s energy challenges.
Gyaama Pensan Senior High Technical School, piloted by Christolove Molgo Arthur and Janet Ohemaa Nkansah, won the challenge with their plant microbial fuel cell technology.
At the contest, the students demonstrated the operation of their newly developed evaporative cooler nicknamed “GP-Air Cooler” meaning Gyaama Pensan Air Cooler which is powered by their Plant Microbial Fuel Cell Technology.
The project coordinators shepherd by Frank Agyekum included Sampson Adu-Heneampong, Ernest Acheampong and Iddrisu Issifu (Head of Science Department).
Gyaama Pensan Senior High/ Technical school will represent the Ashanti Region in the National Contest at the Ghana renewable energy fair in Accra.
