When the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) discovered Kelvin, he was living in utter poverty. But that didn’t stop this engineering whiz kid from building something amazing.
15-Year-Old Kelvin Doe is an engineering whiz living in Sierra Leone who scours the trash bins for spare parts, which he uses to build batteries, generators and transmitters. Completely self-taught, Kelvin has created his own radio station where he broadcasts news and plays music under the moniker, DJ Focus.
He has taught himself how to build batteries, generators, and transmitters, all from parts he finds in the trash. His next goal is to build a windmill in his Sierra Leone community that will provide his neighbors with electricity.
Kelvin became the youngest person in history to be invited to the “Visiting Practitioner’s Program” at MIT. THNKR had exclusive access to Kelvin and his life-changing journey – experiencing the US for the first time, exploring incredible opportunities, contending with homesickness, and mapping out his future.
