As it is powered by solar energy, the project also promotes environmental education, social inclusion, culture of peace and sustainable practices to spread the technology of photovoltaic energy generation to the population.

The project has two vans, whose names are Tupã and Mahura. They have sound equipment and cinema projection, 110 chairs and stools for the public to watch the sessions. They are also fitted with photovoltaic panels and an energy conversion and storage system, with 20 hours of autonomy.

Each van works as a andmobile science, art, technology and sustainability station with attractions for the whole family. The space of each van becomes a classroom, where the public is invited to understand, in a fun way, how sunlight is transformed into electricity, through infographics and lighting.
