The program will provide an opportunity for students from the School of Trades and Technology to analyze, design, document and implement technology to create a “solar bench” where students, staff and the community could charge small devices such as mobile phones. The travel to Kenya will take place over a two and a half week period in May 2019. The project will provide a cross disciplinary senior project learning opportunity for a team of second year students. The NSCC students and faculty will collaborate with counterparts at Camosun College (Victoria, BC) and KCNP.
