I-Business Spotlight Funda nge-OjO

I-Business Spotlight: Funda nge-OjO

Iso idizayina, ikhiqize, futhi idayise izindida zeminyaka yokuqala ye-STEAM (isayensi, ubuchwepheshe, ubunjiniyela, ezobuciko, nezibalo) yezingane ezineminyaka emi-3 kuye kweyi-10. Senza amageyimu okuxazulula izinkinga namathoyizi asuselwa kuzihloko ze-STEM zomhlaba wangempela ezivuselela ilukuluku lezingane, ubuhlakani, namakhono okucabanga okujulile. Amathoyizi ethu okunengqondo, isayensi, kanye nobuchwepheshe aklanywa futhi akhiqizwa e-OjO HQ. Siyaziqhenya ngohlu lwethu lwamathoyizi okufundisa ezingane nemidlalo, abazali abayithandayo futhi elungele ukufunda ekhaya.

I-Motivation

Ukukholelwa kukaMaha Khawaja kwasungula i-OjO njengomzali ukuze kwandiswe amandla ekusasa lengane yami kusenesikhathi, ngokusekelwe ezindleleni eziqinisekisiwe zokufunda i-STEM ngokudlala, okuthuthukisa ukuzethemba, umcabango, kanye nokucabanga okujulile. UMaha ulwazisa ngokujulile lonke ucwaningo olutholakala kungqondongqondo yezingane kanye nokukhula kobuchopho basebancane. njengomama osebenza isikhathi esigcwele, ngokuvamile wayethola ukuthi izinhloso zakhe ezinhle zihluleka. Kwakunzima ukuthola isikhathi sokwenza ucwaningo nokuza nemisebenzi ejabulisayo nevuselelayo ye-STEM, ingasaphathwa eyokuqoqa zonke izinto zokwakha.

U-Ojo wasungulwa esifisweni sakhe sokuhlinzeka izingane ngamakhono abalulekile esikhathi esizayo ngokuvuselela amakhono azo emvelo, ukukhuthaza uthando lokufunda i-STEM, nokunikeza abazali amathuluzi nokusekelwa ukuze bagxilise izindinganiso ezinganeni zabo. Sifuna kube mnandi, kube lula, futhi kube ngokwemvelo ukuthi imindeni ichithe isikhathi ifunda ndawonye. Ithimba le-OjO liyiqembu elinothando! Siyiqembu eliholwa abesifazane.

Ochwepheshe bethu bezemfundo bathuthukisa imiqondo ehlakaniphile neyinselele, abaklami bethu bayenza ibukeke imangalisa futhi kulula ukuyidlala, futhi umphakathi wethu omangalisayo wabahloli bezingane usigcina sinolwazi futhi uqinisekisa ukuthi yonke into esiyidalayo iyajabulisa futhi iyaheha.

Sijabule ngaleli thuba lokusiza izingane zakho nemindeni ukuthi ibone amandla azo futhi ibe amaqhawe e-STEM akusasa. Nazi isizukulwane esilandelayo sososayensi, onjiniyela, abadali, nabasunguli.

Mayelana Nemidlalo 

UMaha, umama wabafana ababili, usethathe indlela yokufunda yokukhulisa inkampani kusukela ayisungula ngo-2.

Ngokukhipha imiqondo yomkhiqizo endaweni yesikhulumi se-crowdfunding i-Kickstarter nokubona ukuthi yimiphi imikhaza, i-OjO yethule imikhiqizo efana ne- Robot Workshop, lapho izingane ziklama enye yezinhlanganisela zamarobhothi ezingaba ngu-144 zemishini yasemkhathini, egqugquzelwa izingxenye ze-Mars Curiosity Rover kanye Amandla Athomu, qoqa ama-proton, ama-neutron, nama-electron ukuze uxazulule izinselele zamakhemikhali ngokusekelwe kuthebula le-periodic.

I-OjO ibambisene ne-UN ukuze isekele i-United Nations Sustainable Development Goals ka-2030 njengoba sihlanganisa imigomo yabo emikhiqizweni yethu. Igeyimu ye-OjO's Underwater Missions Board kanye Nendida Yezihloli Zangaphansi Kwamanzi isekela umgomo 'Impilo Ngaphansi Kwamanzi' ngokufundisa izingane ngezimangaliso zolwandle kusukela zisencane. Lo mgomo ugxile ekongeni nasekusebenziseni ngendlela eqhubekayo izilwandle, izilwandle, nemithombo yasolwandle ukuze kuthuthukiswe intuthuko esimeme. Izilwandle zethu zisongelwa ukudoba ngokweqile, ipulasitiki, nokungcola; sidinga abasunguli bekusasa abashisekayo ukuze batshale imali ezinhlelweni nasezisombululweni zokusindisa izilwandle zethu. Ngeke nje izingane zifunde amaqiniso amangalisayo mayelana nezidalwa eziningi zasolwandle ezihlukene ngemidlalo yebhayoloji yasolwandle ye-OjO namathoyizi, kodwa zizohehwa futhi ziphefumulelwe ukuvikela izilwandle. Sikhuthaza 'Ukulingana Kobulili' emikhiqizweni yethu futhi singenise amantombazane kwisayensi. “Sifuna ukunqamula izinkolelo ezijwayelekile ezenzeka kusukela esemncane ngezifundo ezithile noma ubulili. Sifuna izingane zisuke endaweni ethi “Angikwazi kahle Izibalo” noma “Angikwazi ukudonsa” endaweni yelukuluku nokukhuthazela ukuze zibhekane nanoma iyiphi inselele yokufunda ezifikayo. Kusho uMaha. "Sifuna ukukhuthaza amantombazane ukuthi ahlanganyele ezifundweni ze-STEM kusukela esemncane ukuze athole amakhono adingekayo emisebenzini yawo yesikhathi esizayo." ukupakishwa kwethu akukhethi ngokobulili, njengoba kukhanga amantombazane nabafana.

Siyaziqhenya ngemikhiqizo yethu efaka isandla 'Emfundweni Yekhwalithi' njengoba ifinyeleleka emiphakathini eyahlukene ngenani lethu elithengekayo. Sikholelwa ukuthi imfundo kufanele itholakale kuwo wonke umuntu. Yingakho imidlalo yethu namathoyizi ethatha izihloko eziwubuqili futhi azenze zifinyeleleke futhi zibe mnandi ngemidlalo emibalabala ethokozisayo, ehehayo, egunyazwe izingane. Siyaziqhenya futhi ngokuthi u-90% wemikhiqizo yethu yenziwe ngekhadibhodi futhi igaywa kabusha. Imikhiqizo yethu i-eco-friendly ngokwemvelo futhi ihlanganisa ipulasitiki engaphansi kuka-5%, okuyingxenye yesithembiso se-OjO sokusekela amaphethini okukhiqiza aqhubekayo.

“Sisesigabeni sokuqala, futhi lokho kusho ukuhlola nokuhlola isu, futhi uma enye indlela ingasebenzi, funda ukulungisa indlela yebhizinisi bese uzama enye,” kusho uMaha. “Kodwa inhloso ye-OjO ukubhidliza izihloko ezisabisayo, eziyinkimbinkimbi futhi azenze zingeneke futhi zijabulise ukufundela izingane zanoma yiliphi ikhono nobulili.”

Indaba Yomsunguli

Indaba yokudlala kaMaha iqhamuke ngemuva kwemisebenzi emibili ehlukene ebhizinisini elikhulu. Wenza izifundo zakhe zesibili eLondon School of Economics and Political Science, waphothula ngo-2003, wabe esesebenza eHSBC Investment Bank, okuhlanganisa namahhovisi ayo eHong Kong, Shanghai, Geneva naseLondon. Uthi: “Ngangihlale nginombono oqondile wokuthi umsebenzi wami uzohamba kanjani, kodwa ngabona ukuthi ngemva kweminyaka emine nengxenye ngisebenza ngezezimali kwakungelona intshiseko.” Ebuyela esikoleni, ethola i-MBA ngo-2009 eLondon Business School, washintsha umsebenzi wakhe ekukhangiseni imikhiqizo yabathengi, wabamba iqhaza eNestlé eDubai (eNescafé, emakethe yasePakistan nase-Afghanistan) wabe esebuyela eLondon, Johnson & Johnson, kulayini wayo wokunakekela isikhumba we-Neutrogena.

Eminyakeni embalwa ngemva kokuzalwa kwendodana yakhe, uSaarim, manje oneminyaka eyi-9, wenza i-pivot yesithathu. UMaha uthi: “Bengilokhu ngifuna amathoyizi e-STEM ukuze ngifunde izibulo lami, futhi ngathola ukuthi ngokuvamile ayengamathoyizi angenalutho—acwebezelayo, anomsindo asebenza ngebhethri ayethi ayi-STEM kodwa engadingi ukucabanga okujulile.”

Ngokusebenzisa iminyaka yakhe emine ekukhangiseni komkhiqizo, wethula i-OjO ngo-2017 futhi usezakhele eqenjini labantu abayisishiyagalombili, okuhlanganisa Abaklami Bomkhiqizo, Othisha be-STEM, kanye Nezazi Zengqondo Yezingane ezizinze e-US, UK, naseCyprus.

UMaha waqala inkampani ngemali yakhe kuphela nomndeni nabangane bakhe. UMaha ukhethe igama elithi OjO, elisho “iso” ngeSpanishi, ukumela ilensi izingane ezibona ngayo umhlaba. Uphawula ukuthi igama elithi OjO bekulula ukuthi izingane zilifunde, lingena “ezweni elibuhlungu elizwiwa abanye abazali nezikhungo mayelana namathoyizi,” impumelelo yavela ehhovisi likaMeya waseLondon, elihlinzeka ngemidlalo ye-OjO ukuthi idlalwe emphakathini. imicimbi., nezindawo zemfundo, njengeSayensi Museum eLondon, ibonise amathoyizi ayo emibukisweni esetshenziswayo. U-Ojo uphinde wabambisana ne-CBeebies, isiteshi sezingane esiphethwe yi-BBC, ukuze bakhe indlela ethi Iyiphi Indlela? umdlalo wekhodi. “Bebengamakhasimende ethu okuqala, futhi yize bebengabambisene nabo ezinhlelweni zokukhangisa, sathola ukuthi banciphise imizamo yethu yokuthola irejista yemali ikhale,” usho kanje.

Bekuyinqubo ephindaphindayo ukulalela amakhasimende e-OjO aqondiswe kuwo. Ekugcineni, bathola ukuthi abafundi basekhaya abafuna izindlela ezikhuthazayo zokufaka i-STEM kukharikhulamu yabo futhi abathengi abafuna ukunikeza isipho se-STEM kanye nemfundo kwakungamakhasimende afanelekile. Lo bhubhane uphinde waphoqa ibhizinisi ukuthi lithuthukise ukufakwa kuhlu kwemikhiqizo yalo eku-inthanethi futhi lithuthukise ubukhona obuqinile kumanethiwekhi aku-inthanethi ukuze kuqinisekiswe ukufinyeleleka okuphezulu nokubonakala ku-inthanethi.

Amathuba

Eminyakeni embalwa edlule, i-OjO igxile kakhulu ekwakheni i-ecosystem yezitolo ezincane nezinkulu zamathoyizi, isu eliholele ekutheni kuqalwe ukuthengiswa kwamarekhodi ngesikhathi sodlame.

“Impumelelo enkulu iqhamuke ngokuthintana nezitolo zamathoyizi ezingomakhelwane bese uthi, ‘Singathanda ukukubonisa isampula,’” kusho uMaha. "Ukuthengisa ngokomzimba kubalulekile, kanjalo namathoyizi athintekayo phakathi kwe-COVID-19 kanye nokushintshela ekufundeni kwasekhaya, ngoba abazali balangazelela imidlalo yekhwalithi enhle namathoyizi angasebenzisi izikrini."

Ngemva kweminyaka eminingi eseLondon, uMaha wathuthela eNew York City nomyeni wakhe nabafana ababili (abafana bakhe nabangane babo babephakathi kwabahloli bamathoyizi bokuqala be-OjO,” uyaphawula). UMaha uhlose ukukhulisa umkhiqizo e-US nase-Canada, muva nje uthole inzuzo enkulu eningizimu yomngcele nge-HSN (eyayiyi-Home Shopping Network), ehlela ukwethula abathengisi bayo abaphambili kunethiwekhi.

“Ngifuna ukwenza umthelela emhlabeni wonke, futhi ukuzethemba enginakho ngokwazi ukuthi ngingakwenza kuvele emfundweni yami nasekusebenzeni umhlaba wonke,” usho kanje. "Noma yimuphi usomabhizinisi wesifazane angaqala emncane emiphakathini yakhe, kodwa uma unesibindi, ufisa ukuvelela, uzozuza okuningi."

Ekugcineni umgomo kaMaha uwukukhuthaza kanye nokunika izingane amandla ukuze zibe abashintshi. Sibashiyela umhlaba ogcwele izinselele ezinkulu eziwumlando: ezenhlalo, ezombusazwe, ezezimali, nezemvelo, futhi into engcono kakhulu esingabenzela yona ukubanikeza amathuluzi ukuze bangesabi futhi babe nobuciko ukuze bakwazi ukusungula umhlaba abanawo. ngifuna ukuhlala.

Kulo nyaka, i-OjO yethule uhla olujabulisayo lokuxazulula izinkinga Izindida Zesayensi futhi izokwethula i-Maker Kits, kusukela ekutshaleni ukudla kuye ekwenzeni i-slime, ngesikhathi sikaKhisimusi. “Ngitshela amantombazane nabesifazane ukuthi, ningesabi ukusungula umcabango uma nifika emhlabeni noma njengamanje ngesikhathi sesikole,” kusho uMaha.

“Ezamabhizinisi zivivinya imikhawulo yakho, kodwa futhi zivuza kakhulu uma kuyinto oyithandayo.”
