The plan was to learn to build a solar powered lantern using recycled and donated materials as much as possible. We will have a load of small solar panels around, some LED lights, components and ideas for packaging it all up. The end result should be similar to the sun-jar, but its up to you what happens. In the end we decided upon building solar battery chargers for charging 2 x AA batteries.
