In poor mountain areas of China, many kids walk to school for kilometers. Safety concerns surface when kids need to walk in darkness or without sufficient light due to the lack of sufficient lighting systems and power supply. So, how could we help kids walk safely in the dark? Given that kids need to do long-distance walking, and they always move around energetically, moreover there is usually sufficient sun light in most mountain areas, we designed Energy Light, a device that transfers and saves solar power and energy produced by kids movements, i.e. carrying. It uses the energy as a lighting source for kids whenever they need lighting.
