Bayero University Kano reportedly translates physics, chemistry and maths textbooks into Hausa

Bayero University, Kano, has reportedly translated physics, chemistry, and mathematics textbooks into the Hausa language to aid learning.

A twitter user, with the name Muhd El-Bonga Ibrahim, has hailed the development as very good work, saying it will help those who find it difficult to speak English language, the country’s lingua franca. He also urged that the same thing be done at the primary level.

Professor Liyu Mu’azu, who led the translation team, said that they translated eight textbooks in the field of science and technology.

Gimba Kakanda, a Nigerian writer, called the move a “welcome development, and a very effective way to domesticate science and technology in our society”.

Meanwhile, earlier reported that Moyinoluwa Adeyemi, a Nigerian software developer, achieved a milestone by building a special android watch that tells time in the Yoruba Language.

She got a degree in computer science from Obafemi Awolowo University and now a software engineer at Swifta Systems.

The idea to create the watch came on a Friday evening when she looked at the clock and thought about the possibility of it telling time in Yoruba.

Before she came up with the idea, Moyinoluwa had to do extensive research before birthing one of the Yoruba Watch Faces models. It should be noted that the Yoruba Watch Faces is a collection of watches that are built in a popular local Nigerian dialect.

The illustrations for the watches were created by @TheVunderkind where they portray a man and a woman in traditional Yoruba attire.
