恭喜發財！ (Kung hey fat choi!) Last Friday, we gathered 16 OLPC supporters for one simple mission: assemble an XO dragon at different spots of Hong Kong to celebrate Chinese New Year. Between us all, we managed to collect 13 laptops plus a few tidbits (including some pens, plastic cups, stress balls, hanging clips and bananas!), and the only limit was our imagination, of course.
The evening started off with a warm-up run at Western Market in Sheung Wan. As with any team project, our work evolved from a quick brainstorming session to delegation by different body parts, and our first dragon -- pictured above -- was born within minutes. If you look closely, we actually used some of the batteries as legs! This is the kind of "out of the box" thinking that we aim to promote to children everywhere.
After a second run to improve our efficiency, it was time to hop onto the tram. Read on to see how our tour went.
