Sign up for a spring course with SolarSPELL: Humanitarian Engineering II

Join the SolarSPELL initiative for its spring semester project-based course, EGR 317 Humanitarian Engineering Projects II. Students in this course will contribute to our real-world project by working in teams to respond to the ever-changing project needs we face. EGR 317 offers students an opportunity to learn about the digital library development process as well as overall project management skills.

SolarSPELL at ASU is a global educational initiative that combines curated digital libraries, solar-powered technology, and the training to build information literacy and internet-ready skills in offline environments, focusing on the half of the world that remains unconnected. Their offline digital libraries are designed to bring educational content to resource-constrained locations that may lack electricity, internet connectivity and/or traditional libraries.
