Self-taught Teenage Engineer From Sierra Leone Impresses MIT Folks

Kelvin Doe, a 15-year-old self-taught engineer from Sierra Leone, is the youngest invitee ever to MIT’s Visiting Practitioner’s Program. He has never taken and engineering or electronics class, but has created a battery to power his family’s home and made his own RF transmitter, by scavenging trash bins for spare parts. A truly inspiring video for engineers and future engineers alike!
