Internship: One Laptop Per Child at MIT

*One Laptop per Child Africa Internship Program*

Students have played a pivotal role in every revolution, except learning.
That will change in 2009.  Through One Laptop per Child, student teams from
around the world will each deploy 100 XO-laptops throughout Africa this
summer. If you are an undergraduate or graduate student with an interest in
education, technology or capacity building, our internship will provide you
with unprecedented hands-on experience.

Student Teams will:

  • travel to one of the 53 African countries of their choosing for *9-10 weeks*
  • participate in a *10-day orientation in Kigali, Rwanda* at OLPC?s office
  • receive a *$10,000 (USD) team stipend*
  • deploy *100 XO laptops*, including hardware and support
  • collaborate with other teams as part of a life-long global network empowering a generation
  • send 1 representative to *MIT/OLPC?s all-expense paid summit* from Oct 10th-12th 2009
