An impressive video gaining traction on social media has a student of the Obuasi Senior High Technical School showing how the electronic bucket tap works.
The video opens with the male student walking towards the electronic bucket tap in his school uniform to demonstrate how the Robotic Club’s new innovation works while informing the public about its benefits.
With this latest innovation, users would not have to touch the tap to get the water running.
Water in the electronic bucket flows automatically once a person extends their hands to wash under the tap.
According to the student in the video, the hand-washing bucket tap will help people to have access to running water to prevent the rise of coronavirus which has infected 23 people and already claimed one life in Ghana as at the time this was being published.
