Stand Up. Speak Up. Lend a Hand.

December 14, 2006 :: Shirley Ross, Information Systems & Computing

Information Systems & Computing planned, led, and facilitated the kick-off videoconference in a two-month project with the Klein Foundation. Students in 29 schools from California to England participated in the event and heard from 83-year-old Holocaust survivor and human rights activist Gerda Weissmann Klein, who promotes a very positive message. She challenged all of the students to do a 60-day service learning project. The students will “meet” again in January and share their experiences. This is one of many ways in which ISC promotes Penn’s mission of outreach and community service through MAGPI (Mid-Atlantic GigaPop in Philadelphia for Internet2), the only power networking gateway for the region’s research and education communities. MAGPI delivers cost-effective regional infrastructure that enables rapid transfer of applications and information that the regular internet doesn’t provide.
