Software Freedom Day 2014 – Tsakane

0

A bunch of us celebrated Software Freedom Day this year at a very special school, African School For Excellence in Tsakane (near Brakpan).  The day was a tremendous success, with 106 kids attending (on a Saturday!!) our technology roadshow.

 

The day started at 9.30 with Jay (the school’s founder) introducing us to the learners (a very special experience – all of us got cheers, even the software developers!).

The day started with Jay introducing us and explaining the day to the learners

Then the group was split into three, rotating through two classrooms, each with three tech tutorials.  The group not in either of the classrooms spent some time dreaming and scheming about their upcoming projects and interacting with demos in the tented area.

We want to expose the learners at ASE to empowering technologies like 3D printing, arduino, programming, open-source software, giving them an opportunity to learn those at their own pace. The way we do plan to do this is by leaving behind electronic kits, arduino, books, PCs, software, video tutorials, and more.

We are planning a number of talks to get the kids started:

Contact Schalk or Toby if you have some ideas for the day and/or want to come along.
