Educational Programs

CodeYard -- CodeYard, "Scholier en Open Source"

Computer Science is a growing subject in secondary education (12-to-18-year old students). In 2007 it will become a core profile course for the Dutch high school curriculum. The CodeYard project aims to draw students to the production of Open Source Software (OSS). Students can use the infrastructure and expertise of the CodeYard project to produce OSS, which can be passed on to future generations of students. This should lead to a wider use of OSS.

SchoolLan -- Foundation Stichting SchoolLan

The foundation SchoolLan ceased its activities officially on October 31, 2006. On the moment, no-one is working on a new release. The last release 5.2.0 was made in September 2004.

SchoolLan brings an Internet infrastructure to Dutch primary schools. Pupils and teachers can get access to e-mail and websites with minimal effort. The systems are pre-configured to fit best in the school environment.

SchoolLan has been developed to allow (remote) technical management within in a (technically naive) school environment. The design and configuration can easily be duplicated by similar educational institutions elsewhere. In other words, SchoolLan is a blueprint: a technical configuration/network design model.

Foundation ThinkQuest organized web-games for various target communities: primary school pupils, secondary schools, and even vocational training students. All contests are in Dutch only.
