Gigi Goldman of We Share Solar

We share the common mission of raising responsible youth.  We Share Solar equips students for the future through solar energy education with real world input.  The solar STEM program is built for high school students and middle school students. 

Learn - build - share

They learn about solar, build a suitcase, and through organizations like Alight they deport them worldwide to those without electricity, especially to schools in Africa. Making a difference attracts students, especially girls, to the program.
