Tanvi commented on The Talking Bus

Thanks Elana Blinder for a wonderful description. As a member of the team, I would like to modify the description under "Explain your innovation".

Modifying the first sentence "..suggesting a wi-fi and satellite radio-enabled mobile schoolhouse..."

to this: "...suggesting a satellite-internet and radio-broadcasting enabled mobile school house.."

With satellite internet, the van itself has access to internet through satellite, and doesn't need to rely on providers. It can also provide wi-fi hotspots to children to connect their devices to.

Thanks Kate :) This is awesome!

Hi Leslie, that's the same thing I had in mind when I thought of older people who have years of experience behind them, and just like Robert De Niro's character, can provide a wealth of knowledge and value!
