Hi all!

I am deeply impressed by the profund discussions about OLPC. When I  
look at the equiment of an ordinary school in Germany, it would be  
nice if UNESCO would give all pupils a low cost notebook with python  
installed to have a decent possibility to learn programming. ;-)

A week ago I proposed in a local python group (Python User Group  
Cologne) to organize a Python Camp for Kids. It is not very clear  
what this will be, but I think it could be a kind of weekend course  
with living in a youth hostel or tents or just a intense course  
during two afternoons.

The idea was born out of private experience. I cannot find a  
institution, where my son could improve his programming skills after  
the first steps. School just sucks. And I am not a programmer.

Does anybody here ever organized such an event and can provide a  
checklist or some hints how to organize it?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
