Matric learners plug into innovation with hot shower nozzle

Two astute students from the Simon's Town School's Lawhill Maritime Centre may have found the solution to put an end to the morning struggle with icy showers.

Grade 12 learners Bokamoso Molale and Thamsanqa Hoza have invented a hot shower nozzle which heats water as it passes through the shower head.

Motivated by cold bathrooms sessions at their boys hostel, the dexterous pair created the battery operated device which can be attached to a shower head.

The pair have been selected as one of the top 10 young African innovators who will benefit from support provided by the African Innovation Foundation (AIF) to help develop their innovation.
