iHub Research Build Lab

The iHub Research Build Lab was an experimental hardware design group interested in building appropriate technology solutions for pertinent issues that afflict much of the developing world, with a vision to build a culture of afro-centric innovation among youth. The aim of the internal group was to develop internationally acclaimed and contextual applied technologies with a focus on tackling societal challenges caused by inadequate infrastructure, provisions or services. Build Lab, like the iHub Research Data Lab, was unique in its approach to both develop as well as study the process of developing hardware technologies. This approach emerged from lessons learned over time at iHub Research and required a diverse team that included mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, software engineers, and social scientists.

This PECE essay helps to answer the STS Across Borders analytic question: “What people, projects, and products exemplify how this STS formation has developed over time?

This essay is part of a broader exhibit on iHub Research.
