Sugar Labs @ NDSU

Building a smarter computing culture in Fargo, ND


The Sugar Labs @ NDSU project has many components, but at its core, a group of educators from North Dakota State University  are working with a group of educators from local elementary schools to build a smarter computing culture in Fargo, ND. Some of our goals include:

  • To develop a procedural literacy program that helps kids always consider the central question, “What is a computer?”
  • To develop a “Code Decade” Curriculum that understands the complexities and many forms of a persons path toward computational literacies and learning to code
  • To learn the ins-and-outs of the XO in order to eventually support global deployments of XO laptops.
  • To improve documentation
  • To adapt/develop activities for the XO and Sugar

If you would like to learn more about our program, please contact Dr. Kevin Brooks, Chair of the English Department, at Kevin (dot) Brooks (at) ndsu (dot) edu.

    Hey Kevin,

    I’d be interested in talking to you about this Dinka translation project. I’m learning quite a bit about preparing texts for translation in Bruce’s class, and it’d be good to take it beyond the classroom after the class.
