Intel Nigeria has partnered with universities in order to bridge the technological gap as well address the current skill gap in the Nigerian society.According to the Independent, Intel donated electric training chip boards to hand-picked universities across the country. With the donation of the electric training chip boards christened ‘Galileo Boards’ to the universities, stakeholders say the schools would be able to teach their students modern technological skills that can rev up innovations in the areas of applications and devices development in Nigeria.

According to the Director, Corporate Affairs, Intel, Moise Adams Leye, providing users with a fully-open source hardware and software development environment, the Intel Galileo Gen 2 board complements and extends the Arduino line of products to deliver more advanced computer functionality to those already familiar with Arduino prototyping tools.

Intel is planning a two-week programme facilitated by a global team of Intel professionals to expose students to hands-on training on Intel Galileo development board.
