LumenEd is a social venture founded in 2013 to create connections between classrooms around the world. Through the LumenEd Video Pen Pal Program, we enable weekly video conversations between classrooms, while providing educational resources to students in the developing world. Our platform centers around the Bright Orange Box, a multimedia device that integrates a projector, pc, and camera. With a large battery and an optional solar panel, the Box plays educational content for an entire classroom, even those without electricity and internet access. By opening the door to global dialogue, LumenEd brings together students from around the world to learn, share and collaborate with each other.
