At Cosmic Jaunt, we design and build affordable laptop computers aimed at empowering students to learn, contribute to and become responsible and globally engaged citizens.
WHAT ARE WE SOLVING?
Education Quality: For a lot of schools in Africa, education is not given with the advent of letting one know the real-life usage of something such that they can easily grasp, modify and make others understand. This causes students to fail to translate what they have learned into a range of personal, social, and developmental benefits.
Inclusiveness: Every person should get an equal right and amenity to study a topic of her/his interest with no bias in the name of socio-economic class, physical or intellectual disability by ensuring appropriate alternate modes of accessing educational material are in place which can assist them to learn.
Educational institutions and governments in Africa have initiated different initiatives to counter the growing number of students by focusing their investments on building schools that can accommodate every student. While this is a good move in the right direction, the quality of education is often forgotten and not prioritized.
Cosmic Jaunt tries to solve the challenge of offering high-quality education by designing and building affordable laptops aimed at empowering students to learn, contribute to and become responsible and globally engaged citizens. Our flagship product is a $120 laptop computer that we have recently finished developing. Our computers are equipped with offline learning content such as textbooks and videos.
About Our Laptops
Our laptops are equipped with high-quality instructional videos, notes, and personalized learning resources that will empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. All of these learning resources are built on the laptop (offline); hence the students will not incur additional costs for internet service. The computer also comes with a pre-installed school curriculum in its entirety, open-source eBooks for all classes, an offline copy of Wikipedia and Khan Academy. This computer is designed to be a framework that helps students to organize their learning. In addition to the academic curriculum, there are self-learn courses in coding/robotics, leadership, and Global Citizenship Education.
