A large portion of Ghana lacks access to affordable and reliable grid electricity, as well as education in the STEM field. Through our project, which consists of a solar lantern kit, a user manual, and lesson plans, we intend to leverage the assembly of an extremely useful tool to teach high school students about Electrical Engineering. Although the students assembling the lanterns will receive a direct educational benefit from the project, the community will indirectly benefit from the project as well because the lanterns can serve as a reliable source of lighting at night. The lanterns were tested at nine hours of use and charged at thirty minutes in optimal conditions.
