We're putting in a bid to host FOSS4G2008 in South Africa and
educational outreach is a major component of our programme.

Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] OSGeo education outreach at FOSS4G2007

Has there been any discussion, by the OSGeo
Education Committee or elsewhere, about doing
any "education outreach" in conjunction with
the FOSS4G2007 conference in Victoria?

In particular, I had the idea that on Friday
September 28, 2007, there may be the possibility
for people who attended the conference to do some

Looking at the minutes of the last Education Committee
meeting, I see mention of post-secondary education, but
I wonder if there exists the possibility of educational
opportunities for Victoria K-12 schools(OK, maybe "K"
is a bit young, but you get my point :-)
