The finalist team from Kisumu girls wants to make a stove that can use previously unusable rice husks as energy.
Current stoves are built to use coal and wood which are expensive and not very sustainable. These stoves can’t use rice husks and they pile up on the sides of roads and in towns creating a very unsightly nuisance.
Rice husks would be a sustainable source of energy for stoves that could also remove the unsightly husks from piling up. The team wants to build a cook stove that can use rice husks efficiently for cooking and heating.
