The Summer Pygames, sponsored by South Carolina’s Palmetto Project, is growing this year — students from many schools will have six weeks to learn how to make games for the XO, from design and programming to art and sound production. The results will be judged by elementary school students and teachers. OLPC has donated some XO-1.5s to the event, which last year produced “Burnie’s Balloons”. (And check out the video by the Burning Magnetos at the bottom!)
A tip of the hat to Elizabeth Barndollar and everyone who’s helped make Pygames a success two years running.
