What if every child had a laptop?

Nicholas Negroponte, the founder and creator of One Laptop Per Child, is a professor at MIT who decided that every child–no matter where they are, who they are, or what they believe–deserves the technology and educational opportunities that a laptop provides. When he developed the roughly $200 laptop that is now the foundation for the Laptops for Egypt project, he started a revolution in the educational and technological worlds by creating an accessible and affordable computer for the world’s poorest children. Read this article to find out about his story–he is truly an inspiration and without him, this project wouldn’t even exist!
