Three senior school one (SS1) students of Dansol High School, Agidingbi, Lagos, Oluwatunmise David Ayeni, Rotimi David Adegbiji and Egie Jude Akede, have come up with an innovative idea on how to reduce smoking of e-cigarette in the United States (U.S).The application called “Vape Pen Selling App” is targeted at dealers and retailers of vape pen in America. Vape pen is another name for e-cigarette/tobacco.

The team, with company name “RET Innovate,” said the solution would help vape pen retailers in the U.S to identify the age of prospective buyers, flag ineligible and underage smokers, and also serve as a source of smoking history for regulatory agencies and hospitals.

The team participated in the 2018-2019 Conrad Challenge under the Foundation’s Smoke-Free World category. Having qualified for the finals, they will represent Nigeria in Florida next month. The team will compete alongside other students across the globe at the 2019 Innovation Summit at Kennedy Space Center visitor complex in Florida, where they will pitch their innovations to a distinguished panel of industry expert juries and compete for the foundation’s top honour.
