What is it?

This hack would mean hackers help young children who are having problems with their homework, which could vary anywhere between referencing the children to library resources, to teaching them how to use common programs lie Microsoft Word. This may also be self organised, with the hacker having to promote themselves to nearby schools and communities

What sort of space will you need?

Can work in a school (with permission of course), a library or any community centre where hackers and children can interact.

When could it take place?

This would obviously primarily occur during school, but support could be given over holidays if children have been given projects to work on.


Hackers could research a range of available and appropriate resources for them to use in their homework, such as Virtual reference Library (VRL) linked to library cards.
