Technology has huge potential to increase the scale and effectiveness of our education programmes. Last year in Malawi, primary schoolchildren involved in a pilot project using tablets to increase numeracy skills made more progress in eight weeks than in 12-18 months of usual classroom teaching. This project has been scaled up to 100 schools across the country.
A hundred teenage girls from seven countries are gathered in Malawi for a ‘Women in Science’ camp. Lameck Masina has the story from the Malawi University of Science and Technology in the Thyolo district of southern Malawi. Originally published at - https://www.voanews.com/a/3980298.html
'Holiday style' DXpedition to Malawi in 2014. The special (but unusual) callsign 7QNL was issued to me. It was my plan to participate in the CQWPX CW 2014 contest. However, lots of stations were not able to log what they heard in the air (namely 7QNL) due to incompabilities with their logging software (?? !) This resulted in slowing down rates to such a pathetic extent that I went to bed after calling for almost two hours, having only 12 QSO's (!) in the log, while just before the start of the contest I had pile ups in 'DX mode' with SSB-rates of around 90/hr. To reduce frustration I begged for an additional licence the next day, and got 7Q0NL. 7Q0NL reached 3rd place in Africa (continent). This video also attempts to demonstrate that building vertical dipole arrays (VDA's)...
Off-grid solar energy is a solution that may make electricity available very fast for the over 1 mrd people living without access to electricity at home. In this lecture, Trygve Mongstad will share his experience from Malawi, where he worked for one year as a solar energy entrepreneur through a project funded by FK Norway and the Norwegian Department of Foreign Affairs. https://www.facebook.com/events/859915580723576/ https://www.ub.uio.no/english/about/news-and-events/events/ureal/2015/trygve-mongstad.html Arrangeres av Foton i samarbeid med Realfagsbiblioteket

SOUNDBITE (Chichewa): Vincent Gondwe, GTZ-ProBEC National Director: "Large institutions using rocket stoves have been saving between 80 - 90% of wood over the amount used on an open fire. Because of the stove's efficient combustion of wood there are also health benefits, as there is almost no unhealthy smoke compared to the unpleasant amounts in an open fire. Finally, using so much less wood is good for the environment." Mulanje, Malawi, July 22nd, 2008 8.Mid shot profile ProBEC trainer Francis Chagu...
