“Scoala Altfel” (en. Other type of School) is a one week program that all schools from Romania are organizing to offer to the young students alternative to formal learning. Today we  were at Liceul Teoretic “Petru Maior” Ocna Mures to talk about Free Software/Open Source. My presentation was about Ubuntu local community, thanks to Alex Cucu we had Ubuntu swag :)   and Ioana Chiorean talked about Webmaker tools and WebApps (Firefox OS ).

I also had a presentation about “Open Source for an Open Education”. There were 36 high-school students and they were very excited to learn about FLOSS. It was a nice experience and we are glad to be able to sustain the local initiative.  Hope we’ll be there next year too :)
