What is CRSP dsgn?
CRSP dsgn is social enterprise which was formed in April 2016 to design and develop innovative technologies for social impact. It was founded by Nthato Moagi, an Aeronautical Engineer, in order to commercialise his #LCERT invention for the South African market. Yoshlyn Naidoo, a highly experienced Mechanical Engineer and Manager, joined him soon afterwards.
CRSP dsgn has a mission to design and develop innovative technologies for social impact. South Africa, Africa and the rest of the developing world are plagued with a plethora of social issues that affect them.
Lack of Access to Affordable Quality STEM Education
One of the major social issues that affects South Africa, Africa and the rest of the developing world is the lack of access to quality education for all. At CRSP dsgn, we have developed and commercialised a solution to address this social ill by increasing access to quality STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) resources in the classroom.
The "Low Cost Educational Robotics Toy", or #LCERT in short, is an affordable modular electronics kit which was developed by our founder Nthato during his final year thesis at the University of the Witwatersrand.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
