15-year-old Libin Mathew’s phone is ringing continuously. This has happened with the efforts of certain people who turned to poultry farming in order to overcome the economic slump created by the covid 19 period. His phone has became restless, after Libin started making low-cost incubators.
This guy makes incubators which could be used to hatch eggs, at a cost of only Rs 2,000 when it’s original price in the market is around Rs 10,000. As of now he had sold 25 such incubators.
Libin is a 10th standard student studying in Malayattoor St Mary’s Higher Secondary School. He is an active member of the school’s IT club. In 2019, he has also participated in a district level science festival representing his school. This has encouraged Libin to make new inventions. The thought to make something unique in the time left after online classes has finally landed Libin in inventing an incubator, for hatching eggs. He hatched 40 eggs in his first-made incubator and following that he started making incubators for commercial use. The incubators are made with wood and Polystyrene.
Libin’s has an economically impoverished family. Last year with his father’s demise, his family’s economic problems further increased. The money received from incubator sales provides a great solace to this family which is reeling under the Covid-19 crisis. Libin aspires to become an electrical engineer in future.
