OLPC Haiti implements solar school in Lascahobas

Guy Serge Pompilou, the national leader of the OLPC Haiti project, and Adam Holt, coordinating the OLPC community in Haiti, worked with the Illinois Institute of Technology to set up DC solar charging for a 500-student oipc school in Lascahobas, the latest step in a collaboration on solar-powered schools in Haiti that IIT has supported for some time. The school has no electricity, and children have limited access to generator power in the community, so this was essential to helping students use their laptops regularly. The panels and installation work were sponsored and supported by Bruce Baiki of Green Wifi and a team from IIT led by assistant professor Laura Hosman.
