Modular biodigester and solar power system for Sare Bilaly, Senegal

The Richland Two Institute of Innovation InvenTeam will invent a system of interlocking solar-bioenergy device to provide enough power for a photocopier in Sare Bilaly, Senegal. The system will snap together and be made from inexpensive and sustainable materials so the students in Sare Bilaly can assemble, replicate, and repair it. The device meets the requests from the principal in Sare Bilaly.
