NUL ENTREPRENEURSHIP EXPO BY AYP

We live in an age of mass-media hyperbole. Things now are best-evers, greatest in x amount of time, the most this-or-that since records have been kept, biggest whatever since the last one. This time, it’s the mighty Academic Youth Progress (AYP) Entrepreneurship Expo 2018.

Media hyperbole serves a purpose, but some things are undeniably doing the most, as with the wave of entrepreneurship from the NUL Community that’s spreading country-wide. AYP Entrepreneurship Expo is an event dedicated to the NUL class of 2017/18 and the plan is to keep it rolling yearly.

INTRODUCING NUL’S SOILLESS MEDIUM

When Tebalo Sekorobele, the National University of Lesotho (NUL)’s Chemical Technologist, tested the physical and chemical properties of his horticultural growth medium, he was pleased with what he saw. His product did not only match the commercial growth medium, it was a lot better in other areas.

After a careful development of a growth medium aided by extensive literature studies, and many trials, Sekorobele was pleased to find that his medium could produce plants that matched commercial growth mediums in all aspects.

NUL'S SIGN LANGAUGE INTERPRETER APP GETS INTERNATIONAL ATTENTION

Here is an ambitious project by the National University of Lesotho (NUL) 4th Year Computer Science students; Lika Masoebe and Mokhutli Letsae. When a person speaks to you in sign language, the app will translate that sign language to your language so you understand. 

The project has captured the attention of the World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology which has consequently invited the NUL scientists to present it at the 20th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Soft Computing in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

A TALENTED NOVEL AUTHOR FROM THE NUL

This unusually talented novel author, Tumisang Letsie, is perhaps one of the finest writers in the area of creative writing to have come out of the National University of Lesotho (NUL). Listen to his story. 

In 2005, after completing his high school a year earlier, the author crossed the boundaries of the NUL to study Urban and Regional planning, which is where his writing journey began. He began his novel, The Aura of the Ancestors ‘Leseli la Naleli’ in 2008 after quitting from the university due to consecutive failures.

A TEA FROM MAIZE BY NUL TEA ENTHUSIAST

It is a mouth-watering tea from maize silk by the National University of Lesotho (NUL) graduate, Joalane Mohale. There is nothing exotic about it. It is neither from the vast agricultural landscapes of the Zimbabwe, nor is it from the Kericho and the Nandi regions of the mighty Kenya. No. It has been extracted from the maize grown in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho.

Yes! Maize.

Ever thought of some part of maize being herbs—a herbal tea for that matter? Maybe not, but Joalane says, that is the case.

NUL’S PROFESSOR HIMANSHU NARAYAN TAKES US DOWN THE NULISTICE 2018 MEMORY LANE

Until a week before NULISTICE 2018, many were still asking: “What is this NULISTICE thing by the way?” Many were still saying, “…never heard about it!” Therefore, as much as we were certain about close to 100 participants from other countries, we were very skeptical about local participation, especially from NUL, where the response was only lukewarm. Even until a day before!

NUL UNVEILS MANGANGAJANE ELECTRIC FRUIT DRIER

Dried fruit is good. That is why the National University of Lesotho (NUL) is happy to introduce MANGANGAJANE Electric Fruit Drier. And that is because Mr Seforo Mohlalisi and Mr Thabo Koetje, the two prolific NUL thinkers, are at it again.

With a press of a button, you have your fruits dried, within a minimum of 8 hours! You are ready to munch, or package and sell. And the fruits are very, very clean and very, very healthy—you can sell them to Shoprite, or Pick’npay!

It is the work of NUL’s latest gadget.

Observe his TV stands and Tables and Vases, and you are immediately stricken by a thing or two. They combine strength with lightness, a rare and powerful combination, and they appear as whole entities without joints.
