Remote island regions face many challenges when establishing reliable Internet connections. Using long distance wireless connections and local, sustainable distribution methods, the PISCES Project aims to establish a more accessible connection to the rest of the globe.
An all-in-one solution for remote computers-for-education programs, the Solar-Lab-in-a-Box kit contains all the necessary components to install an off-the-grid computer lab. Six low-power (but full-featured) Intel Classmate laptops are powered by the included solar panels, and with an innovative shipping container that is reassembled into a lab station, the kit provides everything.
Hosman is an assistant professor of political science at Illinois Institute who researches the roles of information and communications technology in development and economic growth. Her blog provides insight into her field work.
