Regina Kgatle, believes that learning should be fun, regardless of whether or not a student can afford an iPad. So she decided to level the playing field by using e-waste to create her Educational Arcade Machine (educade), making learning fun. The machines are pre-programmed to complement the school curriculum, helping to build strong foundations in learning, using simple games and lessons to help learners to excel in all areas of life. She has serviced the kids in Gugulethu, in the townships of Cape Town, and the kids in Hammanskraal, the township in the North of Pretoria. Her hope is to spread educade nationwide, serving both the privileged and non-privileged kids. Her efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. She has received awards for her work both nationally and internationally. In 2014 facebook flew her to the US together with other 24 students worldwide to receive an honour award for young students changing lives through technology, and among many other awards ,she was name the 200 Young Mail&Guardian in 2013. As an Electrical and Computer Engineering finalist student at the University of Cape Town, Kgatle continues to use her knowledge and success to inspire others. During holidays, kgatle spends it giving school talks in her hometown of Hammanskraal, through an NGO she cofounded with a friend and cousin, called Life After Matric (LAM). She is strongly passionate about technology, she reads and write blogs about how the future would look like. She is a tech trend spotter, from new games to internet of things (IoT).In her recent ted talk, kgatle spoke of merging the gaming world with the educational world.
