Hi Jonathan,

Thanks so much for reaching out regarding FLOSS Desktops for Kids. I
apologize for the broken link. Can you try this one: https://wiki.opens

Regarding your specific question regarding the curriculum, you can find
a copy of what we call MAKE Worksheets, at https://drive.google.com/ope

You'll find several other resources on the wiki page--it may actually
be a bit overwhelming--so I would be happy to set up a time to chat
about the program and how we can help you set up something for PAL.

My availability this week is (I am in New York):

Tues, 03/19: Open after 2:00pm EDT
Weds. 03/20: Open all day
Thurs, 03/21: Open after 2:00pm EDTFri, 03/22: Open after 11:00am EDT

Let me know if you'd like talk. Again thanks so much for reaching out,
