5 Technological Innovations Made by the Nation’s Children
1. Electric motorcycle
Based on survey data, Indonesia is the country with the most motorcycles. This also causes air pollution to be high. That is the basis for students of the November 10 Institute of Technology (ITS) to create electric motorcycles.

4. Speed bumps for power plants (PORTRAIT)
Electrical Engineering students of Universitas Brawijaya create Speed bumps for power plants (POTRET). So, this technology utilizes speed bumps that are widely available in Indonesia. The technology created by this nation’s children has spring mechanics that can pump when the vehicle passes. The way it works is similar to a generator that can convert heat energy into electricity.
5. Cancer therapy vest: Innovation by the Children of the Nation
