Throughout the years, many creative thinking skills models and programs have been generated from educators, seeking to describe the essential elements of thinking and/or to develop a systematic approach to Science and technology in Africa. A great deal of Africans regularly design and manufacture simple or complex equipment with local materials or scrap. However, they do not always have a space where they can express themselves and exhibit their inventions. This virtual space provided by technology in Ghana brings together these inventors to give greater visibility to their creations. This week TiGH tells the story of the Congolese inventor, Mathurin Oboukangongo.

If you decided to change your smartphone and you are dreaming of a new, smarter one, you’re probably thinking about an iPhone 5, or a Samsung Note. Of course, all these new models are very expensive. So how can we afford it?
The best case scenario is that your current phone is not more than 6 months old, which means that if you sell it online you will still be able to get up to 80% of its original value. Indeed, the best time to sell your old phone is within 3 months of a new launch. After that time, prices will start to drop by nearly 10 pounds per month. Keep in mind that if you sell your smartphone within the first 6 months since you bought it you can ask for a better price since the phone will still be in warranty period for some time. Before giving your device to its new owner, make sure you erase all your data from it! This is no joke; someone could actually log in your previous information and, for example, purchase apps on your bank account!
