Hi all,

via Twitter I just stumbled across a new Google program called RISE 
(Roots in Science and Engineering) Awards where organizations can apply 
for up to $10,000 / €10,000 for projects promoting and supporting STEM 
and CS education initiatives.

The application period in Europe has started already and runs until 
October 31st whereas the US application portal will become available "in 
the fall". More information can be found on 

This almost sounds like a natural fit for many projects in the OLPC and 
Sugar space such as Turtle Art, eToys, Measure, etc. so I thought this 
could be of interest to many people here.

I'm definitely already thinking about project ideas which OLPC (Austria) 
could apply for:-)
