I want to use an electric scooter as a vector of energy in Africa and to motivate children to go to school by offering them this means of locomotion

A lot of poor people in Africa (Ethiopia for instance) have no electricity at home. We propose to give at students scooters and to use the battery to share power supply and light to their home

    Please orientate yourself by the following:

        How does the technical set-up look like?

        (step-by-step guide, schematics, plan, video or presentation will help!)
        Are you working in a team? List the names of your team members.

    Hi Jean,

    thanks for your additional feedback. Great project by the way.
    However out team think that your idea is a bit out scope according to the challenge in general.
    I'm sorry but we can't consider your pitch.

    Best,
    Nora @ TAPAS team
