[OLPC-Chicago] Hello to the Chicago OLPC group - and a question

I am so glad that you have consulted the list here. I know that our chapter
at the Illinois Math and Science Academy [[IMSA]] is looking to travel this
Winter, between our first and second semester specifically to do something
like this. I am not sure of the details at all right now, but I can say
that it would be a possibility to come and help train your teachers and
students how to use some of the XOs.
As for actually getting XOs, there are two ways to look at it: find a
donation of a few XOs, or find a donation of money to purchase many XOs.
The Give Many program allows for the donation of at least 100 XOs to
schools and organizations just like yours. The cost is $300 a piece.
Please let us know what we can do to help and how you wold like to proceed
with this collaboration, because we are located in Aurora and part of our
mission is to 'advance the human condition,' and I know here at IMSA we have
a number of resources for you beyond our OLPC chapter. The pioneering minds
that started our school (Dr. Stephanie Pace Marshall and Dr. Leon Lederman)
continue to give back to the field of education world wide and are very
connected to your mission.
Anyways, hope this helps.
