A group of eight talented Nigerian girls in Sagamu, Ogun state, have achieved the remarkable feat of creating a humanoid robot.
These girls are students at the Federal Government Girls College, Shagamu, and they constructed this sophisticated machine.
Channel TV shared a video on Twitter showcasing the girls’ machine in action. The robot, standing tall with a head, hands, legs, and other human-like body parts, is demonstrated by the girls.
Named Okikiola Sagamu, the girls shared that building the robot posed numerous challenges. These students from Federal Government Girls College, Sagamu, managed to create a robot that not only explains the concept of Coronavirus but also has the ability to identify faces and engage with people.
The process of constructing this robot spanned nearly a year, during which the determined Sagamu girls persisted in pursuing their dream.
The creation of the Okikiola Sagamu robot has garnered attention for the girls and brought recognition to the school in the field of technology.
