SPARC+ Installation Completed at Soitsambu Secondary School
The Soitsambu Secondary School is located at the Ngorongoro District in Arusha Region in Tanzania. We have been recently on-site to complete the expansion of the SPARC lab we initially installed in 2013. Along with more Raspberry Pi computers, we have expanded the solar grid by adding 4 120W solar modules and 7 new @100ah deep cycle maintenance-free batteries. In addition to an offline digital library (no internet required), office productivity software, and a coding program, this new lab also provides access to the digitized four-year Tanzanian secondary school curriculum from SHULE Direct.
We also provided a three-day training session on-site with the Soitsambu Secondary School staff and Students. An ICT teacher also participated fully during the installation process. The School has pledged to both maintain the lab and conduct regular site visits to oversee the project.
These efforts are only possible because of incredible support from Powering Potential. Please join us in our efforts to install SPARC+ labs in other schools this upcoming year by donating today!
