Our current public education system was built using industrial age
thinking, and is now struggling to adapt to modern educational
needs. Open Source philosophies have given us an information age of
prosperity. Recent developments mean we can finally use "open source
thinking" to transform our educational system into a 21st century
success- but it won't look much like it does today.
We are bringing a previously unrepresented field, neuroscience, to K12 education with an unheard of method: we are open-sourcing everything. You'll learn how building upon open source technologies and using open licensing on our creations lets us do what no one else has -- bring neuroscience to primary education classrooms around the world!

Come discuss concrete ways developers can help to bootstrap the community of educators working to transform schools.
