Mumbai schoolkids make low-cost wheelchair
A group of students in Mumbai have created a low-cost wheelchair with old cycle tyres and bamboo.
The students are a part of a training project by an NGO, Universe Simplified. It is a Mumbai-based organization that organizes science workshops with children.
The children came up with the idea of developing a low cost wheelchair by themselves. They tried using PVC pipes before using bamboo and designed a wheelchair.Universe Simplified believes that with proper motivation and guidance children can use their imaginative skills and create a better world.
