Title:

    Red Hat High: Using Open Source Software in a Technology Camp

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    In the summer of 2006, 52 rising 8th and 9th-grade students attended a week-long residential technology camp at North Carolina State University. Named for the program’s initiator, Red Hat High’s mission was to expose students to technology and software that they otherwise might not be aware of. Using open source software, students were introduced to audio creation, video creation, 3D modeling & animation, and web design. And because it was done with freely available open source applications, students could continue working and learning after the camp was over; even sharing their tools and projects with their peers at home.
