We are pleased to announce the 2019 Minneapolis cohort!
Eleven Twin Cities area schools and after-school programs have signed on for a unique STEM education program during the 2019/2020 school year. We Share Solar is a national program that empowers students to be global changemakers by combining solar energy and engineering education with real-world application. Students will build portable, 12-volt DC We ShareSolar Suitcases that will bring electricity to more than 40,000 students at schools at Kakuma Refugee Camp in the northwestern region of Kenya. The Twin Cities program is fully funded by Wells Fargo.
