What is this project about?
We, as a network of educators that seek improved education for students in rural areas of Africa, are bringing learning to students. By equipping lab rooms with laptops, internet connection, educational resources, and facilitators of learning, we are able to connect African students with school across 90 countries via video conferencing.
Students are guided through a customized Global Goals curricula on STEAM, design thinking, and sustainability that was collaboratively created by volunteer experts from around the world, and they are empowered to take action in both their local and global communities.
Each group of students is guided by one local teacher and has interactions with students and teachers from around the world. This relationship and framework, with many points of connection and perspective, allows for empathy to be central for all participants.
The Lab Schools are sponsored by our partners. Read more.

Free power supply for schools
We developed our own solar suitcase each offering free and sustainable electricity to African schools. The solar suitcase includes a foldable solar panel, 220 Volt inverter and a battery (96 Watt hours). The solar suitcase was developed by Koen Timmers (Belgium) and Brian Copes (USA) and brought to the Kakuma refugee camp by Ken Robinons (AUS) where it now serves the Al Nuur primary school.
We developed lab schools in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria and Brazil. Future lab schools may be developed in Morocco, Argentina, Canada, Australia and Egypt.
