Abstract: The Mobile school is a system that brings the school to children in developing countries. Main findings show evidence that education remains inaccessible to many children in the third world because of poverty, geographical distances, and inadequate infrastructure such as built schools. This study purposes to address the need for education and create easier access to schools. The investigation was done by surveying the site and looking at needs in context. Contact was made to an organization with an existing system similar to the idea I am proposing so as to learn from them and enable me to improve and provide a solution. The proposition is that the mobile school will take form in a vehicle – a bus, due to room for greater capacity. It will travel to various villages/ slums and the school happens within the environment. The mobile school should be fitted with child-friendly interior and allow for convenient set up. With it comes compact collapsible furniture that enables quick and easy assembly and dismantling of class, within and around the bus. It was concluded that such a system could provide children living in obscure, remote or far-flung places, the opportunity to learn. This makes education more accessible and would result in higher rates of literacy. Above all, a concept like this could be used for multiple purposes such as enabling other resources to be brought down to where it is needed. Due to this flexibility, it creates an added dimension of variety and new interests to school because permutations of a conventional 'school program can be modified to the relevance of various places.
