Abstract

In many developing countries, electric lighting is still inaccessible and many students do not have a sustainable light source for nighttime studying, leading to poorer academic performance. Due to this, the Southeast Asian Coalition (SEAC) of Worcester, MA, requested that we design, construct, and test a sustainable LED lighting system powered by a bicycle- and solar-powered battery pack. The generator and battery cases were designed to be waterproof and dustproof to endure usage in the operating environment of Southeast Asia.
