CHARLOTTE – Kennedy Middle School students assembled We Share Solar Suitcases on Nov. 8 for National STEM Day.
The suitcases are portable lighting systems that can illuminate two to three classrooms. They will be deployed to classrooms in Kenya in 2020, providing light for more than 21,000 students in rural schools.
We Share Solar inspires students to learn about, build and share Solar Suitcases with the developing world.
The program has been extended for 2019-20 in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools through additional funding from the Wells Fargo Foundation along with former Duke Energy CEO Jim Rogers and his wife, M.A.
