Your Questions Answered

Pod

The battery that powers Pod has been designed to last approximately 5 hours, enough for a full days teaching.

The battery is powered directly from the included solar panel, in optimal conditions the battery will take approximately 5 hours to charge.

PLA plastic or (Polylacticacid) is a type of plastic that is made from natural materials such as corn starch.

3D printing technology is a type of manufacturing process that builds up a 3D object layer by layer.

Traditional manufacturing techniques  use subtractive manufacturing which means they start with a block of material and remove what they don’t need. Additive manufacturing, known as 3D Printing is exactly the opposite, starting with nothing and building up an object layer by layer. Each layer is slightly different from the last, stacking many layers allows the printer to make 3D objects such as Pod.

It costs £3000 for a complete Pod package, which includes a solar panel, battery pack, power cables, Pod and Lumi.

We have many different options available that would allow you to contribute to our #DonateToEducate movement.

At the moment Pod has been designed solely for emerging markets, for now we’re only allowing Pod to be sold through donations and obtained through partnerships, but who knows what the future holds!

Pod is powered directly by the sun, which makes it incredibly sustainable as no mains electricity is required.

Additionally the PLA we use in the 3D Printing is sourced from plants and crops, the PLA we use is also made from 77% post industrial waste, reducing the need for virgin PLA plastic to be made.

We use 3D printing technology to make all of the blue and yellow parts of the Pod system. One major benefit of 3D printing is that it generates no waste, we only use the exact amount of material we need.

Lumi

Lumi is our bespoke learning software platform which is designed to give teachers and students all over the world access to current, relevant and appropriate learning materials. Designed for learning in challenging environments. Designed to empower tomorrow’s changemakers.

Lumi offers materials on all mainstream academic subjects including STEAM subjects. We are always working with our educational content partners to ensure the content available on Lumi is fit-for-purpose. 

At the moment, Pod and Lumi are geared towards primary school aged children in the developing world. However, the beauty of Pod and Lumi is that they can really be adapted to the context in which they’re used. The SD card slot built into Pod means any projectable content can be plugged into the back of the projector. Meanwhile, we’re always looking to expand the range of content available on Lumi and there are plans on the horizon to plug in health and wellbeing content into Lumi which would be suitable for all ages. 

Donations

Every donation we receive goes straight towards getting Pod to a marginalised student in need. Our driving ethos is that increasing access to education is the key to unlocking the potential of the next generation of changemakers and visionaries and every penny we receive goes towards helping us achieve that future. 

Every donation we receive goes directly towards getting Pod to a marginalised student somewhere in the developing world. We work with a number of charity partners on the ground in areas of need, predominantly in Eastern Africa at the moment, to identify the schools where Pod will have the most impact and work to distribute units in that area.

We have many different ways in which you can donate. You can fundraise for us, donate money, become a partner or volunteer.

We have made it easy for you to select the best option for you on our donate page with a variety of options available from small to large donations and subscriptions.
