Martin Osei, a graduate of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, has led the invention of a product called the Insulated Solar Electric Cooker.
Speaking with YEN.com.gh in an interview, the brilliant young man revealed he studied Mechanical Engineering and graduated in 2018, after which he now pursues his master's degree in the United States of America.
"We have been working on the solar cooker for the past three years as a solution to the cooking needs of people who live particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. Most people still depend on charcoal which causes harm to the environment or gas which is expensive," he indicated.
With initial funding by UK Aid, Martin's solar cooker has begun seeing initial stages of production in seven countries. India, Ghana, Togo, Cameroon, Uganda, Sierra Leone and South Africa.

According to him, the Insulated Solar Electric Cooker is able to provide sufficient heat for families and individuals to cook their meals even after the sun goes down because of its special insulation and an unharmful substance that stores the heat.
The best part of it all is that after the initial amount spent to purchase the cooker, it can be used to prepare meals for about 25 years, which is the average lifespan of a solar panel before another amount is spent.
It is projected that when mass production starts, the cost of each cooker would be $110.
"Investors are welcome to come on board. They can reach us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 026804137/0248765404," he said.
Martin Osei is currently a student at Eastern Illinois University studying MS in Sustainability and MS in Computer Technology.
KNUST and UCC Students Invent Robot that can feed People Without Hands
In another story, students from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in collaboration with their counterparts from the University of Cape Coast have come up with a groundbreaking invention.
Prince David Nyarko, the winner of Best Student in Engineering in Ghana 2020 and the president of Physics Students Association of Ghana made the profound revelation on his LinkedIn handle along with a video to prove.
The innovative students were able to produce a rob that has Artificial Intelligence and is able to read body language in order to feed people who are unable to use their hands due to some form of disability.
