Solar Powered Computer Lab Completed
The work of the past months has been rewarded. The Solar Powered Computer Lab is completed and fully functioning. Now the real work begins - to ensure that the lab and infrastructure are put to good use and to slowly make the lab sustainable through this effort. What this means in practical terms, is that we will be looking at new applications of the available computing technology to produce value for the community - whether this is in terms of generating money somehow for the community through computer usage or whether it is in terms of value to the community such as matriculants getting University bursaries as a result of the programme...
The official opening of the school infrastructure will be on Friday the 1st of August 2008 at 11:00 am. The guest list already is gathering some interesting luminaries:
Mike Eckhart, President of the American Council of Renewable Energy (ACORE), Robert Freling - Director of SELF. I will post more names as they show up on the radar.
There is also still much work to be done in terms of bringing this effort under the roof of the Department of Education. We welcome more cooperation and collabortion with the Department.
We are working on getting the photo galleries up to date... :-) Just another item on the ToDo list...
