One Laptop Per Child volunteer project - The Big Sky Science Partnership has ten OLPC laptops (a mix of XO-1.0 and XO-1.5 models) that need to be upgraded to the latest firmware and OS. We may also be adding some additional Sugar activities.

Those who attend will be given instructions on how to do the OLPC software upgrades and perform them. The process should take 5 to 10 minutes per laptop. This is an excellent opportunity to get some hands on with the OLPC.
