samsung solar powered internet schools in africa
Located in Phomolong, a rural area near Johannesburg, South Africa, Samsung has initiated “an effort” to provide children with modern accesses to technology. Conceived as an environmentally friendly mobile schoolhouse, it receives electricity via photo-voltaic panels installed on the roof. The “solar powered internet school” can generate nine hours of electricity a day, powering the electronic equipment inside the twelve metre shipping container. The 21 student classroom is equipped with a 50-inch electronic board, internet-enabled solar-powered notebooks, galaxy tablet computers as well as Wi-fi cameras. The school can also be easily moved by truck so that students in even the remotest areas can continue their education.
