Project charged up and ready to go!
It looks like the solar school computer lab is set to do great things. The solar installation is practically finished, the batteries are charged, the laptops are ready and school holidays end on the 13th of July. A lot of hard work over the last couple of weeks is finally bearing fruit.
Our training programme, mentioned in the last blog posts concerning, has a name - it is the Eastern Cape Schools' Participatory Internet Research and Training Project... ECSPIRT! And it's all about producing a new rank of ecspirts, sorry experts. We have secured funding from SELF and Rhodes University now for the project and are waiting to hear if some other funders would like to add a little to the project. So we are set to begin training a new group of software product managers in August!!
