Immersion Grants

If you've got an interesting project idea or pilot to explore in Project Wonderland, Darkstar or SunSPOTS for Immersive Education but are running a bit short on resources (and who isn't these days), then Sun is here to help with our 2009 Matching Grant Program. So, toss in a proposal to establish a node on the Education Grid, set-up a student lab around Blender and Netbeans for creating Open Virtual Worlds or maybe to pilot a use case scenario that you think might be a real community showcase with transformational impact for Immersion, then click on the image below and let's get started.

Edutain@Grid


Just reporting in on a snowy mountain morning from our cabin in Truckee in advance for the start of the long Memorial Day weekend. After yesterday's low of seeing several close co-workers walked out the door and then high of a great discussion about Wonderland with the nice folks from Chicago Public Schools .Today is mostly a day of vacation other than a quick call with BCU and then Aaron later today. Thanks to Open Work and my iPhone it seems like life is pretty much "always on" which is fine because I love my job at Sun and the people I am fortunate enough to work with in a global role. That's why it was cool to see the note arrive from Alexis and Adrien at Darkworks in Paris mentioning news about the Project Darkstar and the Edutain@Grid project. And now, the sun is starting to come out.... send my last emails out.....grab a guitar on the deck, peace.
