Around 109 elementary school students attend Escuela Primaria "Ninos Heroes," in Santiago Ixtayutla, Mexico. The school has no electrical power and students have never seen a computer. About 70% of students drop out of school after 6th grade and 95% after 8th grade. The project scope is to design, build, and deliver a modular, rooftop solar power generation system. The system will be deployed to Santiago Ixtayutla, Mexico in June 2017.
