FastCoExist reports on the great work being done by Aleutia and Safaricom Foundation to encourage stem education in Kenyan classrooms.

For $20,000 each, every school in the developing world could have a room full of computers, so students can access educational resources and get online.

That’s the price charged by Aleutia, a London startup founded by an American named Mike Rosenberg. Since 2007, Rosenberg has been building ruggedized desktop computers for African schools and clinics, all powered from solar panels. This summer, it’s delivering not only computers and panels, but 47 full prefab container classrooms, one for each of Kenya’s counties.

The PC-classrooms, which are 20 feet by 9 feet, will go into schools chosen by Safaricom Foundation, Africa’s largest telco, which is funding the project and providing logistical support. “They’re getting it out there, we’re providing the ready-made structure,” Rosenberg says. That includes 10 computers, a server, 11 monitors, a switch, batteries, and the solar panels.
