We've talked about this quite a bit at our LUG meetings and have put
special emphasis on contacting teachers and students for our open source
we had some success at our March event as we had a number of students
from the local 6th form college who attended.
we are looking to build on this for our event in sept for software
freedom day - so any ideas gratefully received
I would be interested in developing material to make it easier for
teachers / students to get started - it would be useful to have a
resource that local LUGS and others could then tap into if they are
trying to get interest in schools and colleges in their area.
