With over 100 students to teach and few resources, the job of a Malawian teacher is challenging. With our portable solar-powered projector, we can provide them with high quality resources that can be projected to every child in their class.
Most primary schools in Malawi don’t have access to either high-quality teaching resources or electricity. Unlocking Talent learning centres aim to give all children the fundamentals of literacy and numeracy through apps that each child works through at their own pace. Their progress is remarkable.
Building on this, how can we empower teachers with high-quality resources that they can use with their whole class?
Teachers will have access to a curated set of engaging and valuable apps, videos and books. Whilst the projector will be used in participating oneclass schools for the time being, the projector is easily scalable and could become a tool for more more diverse needs, including medical or social workers.
The current prototype consists of:
We would like to thank Chris Moller and CP Cases who helped design and manufacture the first prototype projectors.
