In many schools there is a lack of basic facilities such as chairs and tables where most children walk a significant distance to reach the school. My design helps to improve this everyday problem for kids. This design is a multi-functional backpack for primary school children that itself opens into a padded stool with a board to press on while working. It is an easily transportable, flat-plack design with only three loose parts that can be assembled without any screws. A backpack that transforms into a padded stool - it can easily create an improved learning environment anywhere without being restricted to the four walls of a classroom.
