OLPC Austria (Web site) has been running a small proof-of-concept project at the teaching school of University of Teacher Education Styria in Graz, Austria since autumn of 2008. Shortly after being enrolled in the school 25 pupils (and 2 teachers) received XO-1s, today they're in their 4th (and final) year of primary school. The school is an all-day school which is rather untypical for Austria.

The fact that this is part of an University of Teacher Education has allowed for various student projects, particularly final bachelor thesis, to take place in the context of the project. Additionally in 2009 and 2010 Computer Science students from Graz University of Technology worked on developing a Mathematics exercise Activity called ReckonPrimer for use in the proof-of-concept class.
