This week in KOC – April 7, 2016

Here’s what KOC is currently working on:

  • The Linux Foundation has partnered with Kids on Computers – we are incredibly excited about this partnership and the potential it has to help KOC grow. We thank the Linux Foundation for their support and look forward to working closely with them. Read the full Press Release and the Blog Post about the partnership published on The Linux Foundation Web site. 
  • The KOC Web site is undergoing a big overhaul. The Web site team (Bill M, Ritvik P, Sastry P, Jeff P, and myself) has been meeting regularly to work on the new site and review new themes, structure, and content. We are excited about the new site and this long overdue change.
  • We had 21 Raspberry Pi 3s donated or purchased for the new Jose Vasconcelos Lab we are setting up in Oaxaca City, Oaxaca, Mexico. Volunteers are currently testing the Pis and determining the best distribution and applications for them.
  • The Mexico subcommittee is planning our trip to Mexico this coming June. We are excited to set up two new labs in Oaxaca City this year and visit as many of our 10 other labs as we can. Our trip dates are June 18-July 2, 2016. We are always looking for more volunteers to join us on trips. Join us!

Thank you to our volunteers, donors, and partners for your efforts and support! Kids on Computers is successful because of you.
