- Mama Infants App:
Sources vary, but many estimate that approximately 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage; and some estimates are as high as 1 in 3. If you include loss that occurs before a positive pregnancy test, some estimate that 40% of all conceptions result in loss showing there is a need for an expectant mother or young mother to know what to do when to do it thus Mama infant app will come in.
The application is that guide book every expectant mother or young mother should always have it will take u through the transition to mother hood with the steps for every month of pregnancy, the do and the don’ts with a specific diet for a young mother or the expectant mother.
We care for the future because we care for our infants mothers.

- Machine Learning (M.L) for Physics
This is a project based on ideas of Machine Learning (M.L). The group had to train computers to accurately recognize sentences in either Swahili or English out of reading entries from Wikipedia in both languages. Similar rules and techniques were applied afterwards to detect the presence of particular sub-atomic particles inside Physics data collected from the Compact Muon Solenoid (C.M.S) experiment at CERN.
