Project RENGEN sign up by Dec 31st!
As part of the RENGEN Project, students will be working with our partner, Fablabs at Georgetown University, to learn how solar panels function and develop prototypes for the final sustainable energy project. After the training sessions, they will be supported by Fablabs and the TQ team to organise the implementation of solar panels in their schools or to design an advocacy program for renewable energy use.
Please note that although the sessions are free of cost, should schools wish to implement solar panels in their schools, this will incur financial costs. Please see the guidelines here.
Schools will be informed of the estimates of these costs after registration. Please ensure you have filled in the form below to enable us to plan to accommodate your school for the project:
