Kevin Owusu Afriyie, a student at Tema International School (TIS), built an electric off-road vehicle as part of his Middle Year Programme (MYP) project.
The project was performed under the supervision of School mechanic experts and tutors, who assisted the student in putting his gained skills in physics and mathematics to use.
According to the student, the decision to build the electric off-road vehicle allowed him to demonstrate his abilities while also gaining valuable knowledge.
Kevin Afriyie disclosed ideas to upgrade the car to make it even more sustainable.
“Loving cars and mechanics with a passion, I have been crafting and creating cars with cardboard and other materials from my early ages.
“This project has been a rollercoaster of emotions and effort. There were happy nights when measurements and equipment were appropriate and there were other times when calculations were not on point and this caused problems for the project,” he highlighted.
He added, “I have developed numerous career skills, such as 3D modelling, cutting and welding of metal bars and wiring through the course of this project and have also benefited from the use of research and collaboration skills.”
Kevin Owusu Afriyie expressed gratitude to “my friends for their encouragement, my loving mother and family for helping me with funds and support.”
“I am also grateful for being in the Middle Year Programme at TIS, which has given me the opportunity to pursue such a project and finally, Almighty God, for His helping hand through this journey.”
