The idea was simple - make solar panels cheaper and easier for third-world countries to use - but it won them $5000 and an international prize. Three UNLV engineering students took home first place at a design competition sponsored by the United Nations and the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers. We talk to them about their prize-winning design, and how it can help lives in Pakistan.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
