The Solar-powered Internet Schools-classroom can accommodate up to 24 students. Samsung says Internet Schools will teach students how to use computers and how to surf the internet.

Fold-away solar panels provide sufficient energy to power the classrooms’ equipment for up to nine hours a day, or one-and-a-half days without any sunlight. The solar panels are made from rubber, rather than glass, ensuring they are hardy and durable enough to survive long journeys across the continent.
