K12Linux will be there. Red Hat is supporting travel for our students
and amer.com is shipping in 15 thin-clients. We'll have the email garden
like we did last year but they've given us additional space this year to
setup a classroom too.
We'll have an IBM Thinkpad based mini-wireless-classroom running Fedora
Core 2 with a projector and screen for presentations. My students will
be running hourly "classes" on everything from Gimp to tours of the
Gnome desktop. I'm hoping to have more hands-on learning from the
teachers as they participate in classes.
I'll only have 4 students with me this year since it's so far away but
we hope to make a good show of it.
