One Laptop Per Child -- Community Jam

Saturday, May 3, 2008 - 10:00am
Community Jam

Have you heard about the XO, the innovative "$100 laptop" from the non-profit organization One Laptop Per Child which wants to provide children of the developing world with low cost laptops? Did you get your own through their "Give One Get One" donation program? Or do you wish you did? (Maybe next time.) Do you want to learn what people in other countries are doing with them, what kids are doing with them, or how they can be used for education and creativity in the classroom and elsewhere? Maybe you have ideas of your own for software games and applications?
Come to our OLPC community workshops. Bring your XO if you have one. Learn how you can develop software, play games, connect to the international XO development community, and get involved in the Boston/Cambridge XO user community. Adults and kids, families and individuals are invited.
