I teach Electronics and Computer Science in middle school, and this project is an extension of Engineering Brightness (http://e-b.io) which tasks students with solving the problem of light poverty. We are working to create sustainable solar lanterns for people without access to reliable electricity at night!

This version of the lantern costs roughly USD$5.00 to create, but it does not have an enclosure yet. Our next step will be to design a 3-D printable enclosure for it. We hope you order parts and build the lanterns with your students, and share your enclosures with us so we may find the best design. Include a link to .stl files in the comments or tell me how to reach you!
