The highlight of nearly every student’s day is when the teacher holds a class or lecture outside. But because of increasing concerns about UV protection (especially in Australia), and a reliance on electronic teaching devices, fewer and fewer classes have been held outside of a traditional classroom. Here to solve the problem is the VEIL solar shade – an invention that was funded by the Australian government, and that serves a dual purpose for the students: shade, and accessible energy that is absorbed by solar panels on the roofs. Now it shouldn’t be any problem for teachers to break free from the confines of the classroom and hold a lecture outside, where students can plug their laptops in and enjoy the comfort of the outdoors from the shade.
