FLOSS Desktop for Kids

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In line with the "Maker" movement and supporting STEM education, this session will demonstrate the FLOSS Desktops for Kids program where students build computers through hands-on, project-based learning. This FLOSS Desktop for Kids curriculum provides resources to help school districts, teachers and students learn about computer hardware, networks and software using surplus and discarded school computers: kids break-down and repair computer hardware components, and install open source software to assemble completely functional personal computers. The project teaches kids about computers and computing by doing. Once completed, the kids can take their computers home, "for keeps."
