Far should not mean disconnected
ACCESS TO EDUCATION
This portable hotspot provides wireless access to pre-loaded digital resources by leveraging existing open-access educational resources such as Wikipedia and Khan Academy.
UNI provides a connectivity bridge that allows populations who do not have access to the Internet to access valuable resources for the purpose of teaching, learning and researching.
UNI works with devices that the local populations are already using, such as inexpensive Android phones and old model laptops with wi-fi compatibility, making it a feasible solution.
