About this event

Global Teacher: Solar-Powered Projector Launch!

Theme: A Dream To Be Told.

We're launching the world's first educational, 3D printed, solar-powered projector to teach one million marginalised students, offline and off-grid!

Access to digital education is difficult for many. 31% of the global population does not have 3G coverage, while 15% have no electricity.

Global Teacher is a #TechforGood Charity committed to making digital education accessible, without internet or mains power. Our mission is to teach one million marginalised students through the revolutionary, 3D printed solar-powered projector, named Pod.

Pod is a low-cost, durable solar-powered projector that is sustainably powered, uses a bespoke offline learning management system and makes digital education accessible in rural parts of the developing world.

Come along and meet the charity that is changing education, forever!
