Set up by a group of Senegalese students, the start-up SENEBOT promotes the use of robotics in Senegal by advocating its integration into the school, college and university curriculum. Its goal is to develop students’ coding skills, encourage their desire to learn and above all show them it is an exciting new STEM topic.
At the same time, SENEBOT is developing ways to improve everyday life for Senegalese citizens. For example, WASOR (Waste Sorting Robot) aims to create a robot capable of sorting plastic waste that can be sold to local companies to reuse or recycle.
