Polyachka: so how often do you meet?
Elsa: that depends
Elsa: last semester we had weekly meetings
Elsa: this semester we’ve been meeting mostly as project teams
Elsa: that happens at least once a week, but in smaller groups
Elsa: I’m interested in learning more about what you’re doing in vietnam – how did you get started there?
Polyachka: can i ask you a couple more questions, and then tell you more about my project?
Polyachka: btw I went to Babson College 🙂
Elsa: o, cool
Elsa: i’m taking a class there now
Polyachka: which classes?
Elsa: just the one. its called environmental and sustainable entrepreneurship
Polyachka: yes, i took entrepreneurial classes there too
Polyachka: so about the Olin chapter, in 4 years, what kind of projects were finished or worked on?
Polyachka: are any of them implemented and used?
Elsa: so, there’s this curriculum we’re teaching this semester. We’re planning on trying to find other schools interested in running it in the future, but that’s currently in progress. Same with the robotics stuff. There’s a pilot school in Cambridge that is interested in both, potentially next semester(since we don’t really have the manpower to do anything with them this semester)
Elsa: there was an accelerometer USB peripheral
Elsa: I don’t think that’s been used
Polyachka: i tried to find info on wiki.laptop.org but couldn’t
Polyachka: as it is all old, no recent updates
Polyachka: do you have a current link?
Elsa: I did a lot of updates over winter vacation, just a few weeks ago
Elsa: this is our current project http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Olin_university_chapter/Projects/Curriculum
