Ray of Light Cambodia is after old laptops and mobile phones

Dear all,

Please see the attached poster.  The Underwood’s will be spending time at an orphanage in Phnom Penh over the winter break.  Old laptops are needed as Ati and Ato will be setting up a media centre to help the children there improve their learning opportunities.  Mobile phones are needed to help older students get part time jobs to support their own learning.

Become Courageous – Week 18

How might we create opportunities for the NIS community to be courageous?

In week 18, a stage environment in front of the library will have the following play/experiment/learn items:

  • Monday – Hula Hoops
  • Tuesday – Simple DJ equipment
  • Wednesday – Juggling Balls
  • Thursday – Art Easels and Supplies
  • Friday – Piano

Courageous learners and creators are invited to enjoy and interact with any articles on the stage.

They will be filmed with the purpose for review by the prototype team to see if activities should be scaled or ditched.


This prototype is inspired by Sugata Mitra’s 1999 Hole in the Wall experiment.

Computers were placed in a slum in Kalkaji, Delhi to enable

unsupervised access, informal, public, self-guided and collaborative work

to synergize through creative and courageous play.
