Self taught teen from Sierra Leone invited to MIT Media Lab

Youngest visiting practitioner at 16 years old runs a radio station he built himself
At 16 years of age, Kelvin Doe or DJ Focus is the youngest person ever to be invited to MIT Media Lab as a Visiting Practitioner. Even more remarkable is that Doe lives in Sierra Leone, an African nation on the path to recovery from civil war, and he’s already an accomplished, self taught maker. Prior to his visit, he had never traveled more than 10 miles from his town.
Doe was given the opportunity to spend three weeks at MIT as part of their International Development Initiative program, after becoming a finalist in Innovate Salone. Innovate Salone’s a contest started by fellow Sierra Leone local and PhD candidate at MIT David Sengeh to challenge and stimulate young people to solve many of the complex issues of their country which has recently emerged from a decade long civil conflict.

Buy one get one deal — buy a Ponoko gift voucher, get a FREE making voucher

extended through December 23, 10pm pacific!

Who’s that coming down the chimney? It’s Voucher Claus again! And he’s got a mittenful of glowing BOGO Ponoko vouchers.

If you know someone who makes stuff, then you know someone who would love a Ponoko voucher — which is like a New Zealand word for gift certificate. And the best part of giving this gift is that you get a little something for yourself.

Vouchers are emailed as PDFs so you can print them off for stocking stuffers or keep it virtual.

Buy a Gift Voucher by December 20th and get a FREE Making Voucher!

• Buy a $100 gift voucher – get a FREE $50 making voucher
• Buy a $50 gift voucher – get a FREE $25 making voucher
• Buy a $25 gift voucher – get a FREE $10 making voucher

What’s the difference you ask?
A *gift voucher* is good for any part of a make-it-yourself order: making, materials, and shipping. A *making voucher* is good for the making costs i.e. the actual laser cutting, CNC routing, or 3D printing.

Unlike coupon codes, vouchers *can* be used with Ponoko Prime accounts!


Vouchers good for make-it-yourself orders only, not showroom purchases. Valid at Ponoko US & NZ making hubs only. Please see our Gift Voucher Guidelines for details on redeeming gift vouchers and our Making Voucher Guidelines for details on redeeming making vouchers. Vouchers may not be combined with coupon codes or other discounts.
