This is the wiki-homepage of the Olin College OLPC university chapter. Please edit!


The Olin College OLPC chapter is a student-run volunteer organization that works with Sugar Labs and OLPC. Our group is a mixed group of software and hardware engineer students, as well as people interested in curriculum design and technology-driven education. Our goals include learning and participating in a philanthropic cause as well as developing and exercising engineering and education skills
