Self-taught African Teen Wows M.I.T.

I almost cried while watching this. Kelvin Doe is a young teenager form Sierra Leone whose ingenuity far exceeds his resources. With what little is available to him in his hometown, he's created his own FM station which he DJs himself to give the people of his community a voice. He creates generators with broken electronics and other parts he finds in the trash. I have no doubt that Kelvin has a very bright future. Obviously MIT agrees. I hope we can foster the ingenuity of people like Kelvin in the future, because these are the people that will change the world.
