OLPC Grant Awarded!

Our team, Breona Gutschmidt, Emma Nierman, and Cecilia Jezek from the University of Washington, Jen Hill, Priyanka Rao, and Bryan Isom from the New School were awarded an One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) grant!

OLPC's mission is "to create educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning. When children have access to this type of tool they get engaged in their own education. They learn, share, create, and collaborate. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future."
