Last October, Allister Chang, Executive Director of Libraries Without Borders USA, implemented the Ideas Box at the Cambridge Community Center in Massachusetts.
On this ocasion, the Ideas Box turned the center’s annual “Family Night” into an interactive, fun, and educational event, to the delight of children in attendance! One mother of a 7-year old boy told a reporter at The Citizen, “I’ve never witnessed something like this. I came to pick him up and he begged me to stay.”
The event has also provided the opportunity to see how the project works in an urban environment in a developed country like the US, and see how people interact with its technology, including preloaded Khan Academy educational software, among other contents.
