Glowing skipping rope / Mountain walking

Glowing skipping rope

This is a sport skipping rope specially designed for poor children in mountainous areas. Because they are far from the school, they often have to climb dangerous mountain roads to reach the school in the early morning. Because there is no light, this process is fraught with danger. Two children hold the handle of the skipping rope for lighting, and the other children hold the luminous rope so that everyone can clearly see the road without being left behind Light energy comes from the mechanical energy of children jumping rope and playing.
