THE STORY:

Arrrrggg, we are mean, green and here to harvest the sun beams! It is our vision to complete our mobile home, office and classroom. We bought a 1963 GM Transit bus, stripped it, and are completing the inside. With this vehicle, we are building a mobile nonprofit that is an outreach for a hands-on adventure to educate kids about RENEWable Energy! This expeditionary learning will teach the kiddies about human power, solar technology, biodiesel made from algae, as well as other renewable energy sources. We are currently raising money to equip it with solar panels and batteries to power the dream, as well as cover the fees for starting a non-profit. Help us teach kids how to capture rays of the sun and by doing so, empower a generation with knowledge of alternative energy.

 

Our progress so far entails taking out the original bus seats, building the walls to what will become our bedroom, building the bed, building the kitchen counters and cabinets, and installing the bathroom section of our composting toilet. What we need help with is raising funds to purchase weatherstripping so that our windows don't leak anymore, solar cells, battery bank, AC converter, and the necessary supplies to create a mobile classroom for kids to learn about alternative energy sources. We'd like to purchase microscopes as well as modular containers for our algae-growing operation. We'd also like to purchase small solar cells or other scientific supplies that will become a part of experiments that are suitable for kids.
