Alexis Cullen works as a volunteer on the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu, one of the Peace Corp’s most remote places. In the village where she works, called Naviso, some people have never heard of the Internet. That is not uncommon in the South Pacific, where some people have limited learning resources. But without the Internet, Cullen says, people are falling behind. To help, Dr. Laura Hosman, a professor at California Polytechnic State University, and her students developed a special type of library. It is called SolarSPELL. It is an educational library that is powered by the sun. Dr. Hosman says she wanted to create a digital-based library that would not be ruined in extreme weather. Although it does not use the Internet, it creates a similar experience. Hosman says the library is an offline website that behaves like the Internet. It permits students to practice using the Internet on a smaller scale, Hosman says. Each SolarSPELL unit comes with a memory card or a small plug-in device that holds the educational resources. It only uses a small amount of space, and does not need power cables or electricity. Hosman and her students worked hard to find resources to put in the library. They chose materials that appeal to people who live in rural areas in the South Pacific, such as Vanuatu. The Peace Corps has used about 50 SolarSPELL units. In Naviso, about 200 students have used it.
