 +Our project would be to improve upon our online learning platform, Oppia, which is completely open source and has been since its inception. We’ve already seen great learning outcomes from students who complete our free interactive,​ and story-based lessons, and we specifically build in features to support the world’s most underserved students. In working on this project, participants would not only be working on open source software, but they would also be increasing accessibility to quality education for students around the world, including the thousands in India, Cameroon, and United States that already leverage the platform.
