The project seeks to make a difference in education by introducing essential digital resources (encyclopedias, books, training videos, etc.) to schools in remote areas where the Internet is at best spotty if not altogether unavailable. It uses open hardware (Raspberry Pi 4), open source software (Apache, PHP, etc), and open educational resources (OERs) to bring much-needed resources to rural K-12 schools.
