Update:Â The US Embassy recently visited Ecole Shalom and its OLPC deployment, with a donation of creole books, and blogged about it in English and French.
Nick Doiron recently travelled to Petit-Goave, Haiti, Â continuing to map the country there via OpenStreetMap.
He has also been hacking on activities for the OLPC schools there, most recently the Bridge activity originally from Daniel Drake and Nirav Patel — adding a plugin which lets you incorporate a solar sensor, which lets sunlight grow giant flowers that push up your bridge!
If you think this sounds like a daydream morphed into activity form,Â you’re absolutely right. Â (see screenshots below).
Nick: if you’re looking at games to add solar sensing to, thenÂ Rollcats is an obvious choice. Â The Sun is your cheerleader!
