Aurora, NIC, YukonU students install solar panels in Peru


Aurora College, North Island College, and Yukon University students recently travelled to Santa Rosa de Llillinta, Peru to help an Indigenous community install solar panels on an elementary school that previously did not have electricity. The focus of this project was to give Canadian postsecondary students hands-on experience in an environment where they could work with and support a remote community. The participants represented a multidisciplinary group, from programs such as renewable resource management, conservation sciences, earth sciences, and the trades. The project was conducted in partnerships with the charity Light Up the World.CBC
