“Hassounah shows the students how to boot up their open-source laptops. The bright colors were designed to appeal to children, but the bug-like antennae are mostly practical.

“This school is the first test deployment site for OLPC’s XO laptops. OLPC installed a satellite dish, power generator, and modem to give the school electricity and Internet connectivity.”
