MAKE GLOW BUILD AND LEARN PROGRAM
Collaborating with potential NGOs and partners like Teach For India, the Make Glow Build and Learn program can be integrated in the curriculum of schools from low-income rural communities in India.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE MAKE GLOW BUILD AND LEARN PROGRAM?
This program is meant for students between 13-17 years. The students will trace the Make Glow template on discarded cardboard (that could be sourced from local recycling centres, offices and retail stores). Students will cut the form using x-acto knives. A Make Glow teaching guide/ solar curriculum will help train teachers guide students through the program. The teachers will instruct students about folding and placing solar LED components on the cardboard structure. Meanwhile, concepts of solar technology, renewable energy and building circuits will be taught to students during the activity. Taking precautions while connecting electrical components and using lead-free soldering techniques, students will complete the circuits and fold the cardboard, building their own Make Glow solar lanterns.
END OF PROGRAM SALE
At the end of the program, the entire class of students will set up a sale where they will exhibit their Make Glow lanterns and sell it to other people in their communities for a very low cost. (The low cost is achieved because Make Glows lanterns use discarded cardboard and its DIY nature eliminates labour and transportation costs).
