Don’t forget your shovel. :: Ottawa-Gatineau OLPC Meet-up March 21

Dear OLPC Users in the Ottawa-Gatineau area,

Our next meeting will give us a great opportunity to meet our aspiring local OLPCorps Africa group and to get involved. We will be meet and have a presentation from Sam Burton followed by discussion and hopefully some time just to catch up and share all of your recent OLPC discoveries.

Sam Burton is a MA Mass Communication student at Carleton and Project Coordinator of Jamii OLPC. Jamii OLPC is a multi-university, multi-national team applying to OLPCorps this summer. If their application is successful, they will receive funding and 100 XO laptops to deploy to their partner school, Matemwe Primary School, in Zanzibar Tanzania. As members of the Ottawa XO Users Group you have extensive hands-on experience with XOs, and Jamii OLPC hopes that you are interested in getting involved in the project, and providing insight, feedback and suggestions!
