About Education

Have you ever wanted to contribute - or get others to contribute - to an open source education project, but never found the time to set up and get started? We've got a ready-to-go contributors' (not just code!) environment for you!

Providing students and teachers with a variety of development environments, tools, documentation, and getting-started resources, the Fedora Education SIG achieves its goal of lowering the entry barrier to contributing as much as possible.

The Education Spin features a number of well-received solutions, such as the award-winning Sugar Desktop Environment - as seen on the OLPC and Sugar on a Stick - and the popular KDE Education applications. It also contains a complete Eclipse development stack and other tools, allowing not only an exploration, but also the creation of code.
