IPRC Tumba College and Lake Kivu – 8/07/2018


Sunday was an early rise for the team as we ventured to the Northern Province to visit IPRC Tumba College of Technology. The college was established to meet the industrial and social needs of Rwanda and offers courses in Alternative Energy, Electronics & Telecommunication and Information Technology. We received a tour of the college campus and facilities led by academic staff who are also keen to promote women in to STEM subjects. A few of our electronic/electrical engineering team members were particularly interested in the facilities Tumba has to offer.


After the visit, we headed to Lake Kivu, stopping off along the way to take pictures of volcanos and local scenery. Everyone, including our bus driver Gratien, enjoyed relaxing at beautiful Lake Kivu listening to traditional Rwandan music and mingling with locals. The majority of the team went on a boat ride together to watch the sunset – a lovely end to the day. The whole team enjoyed and appreciated some free time before getting back to school visits again on Monday.
