This project is not part of the GNU Project.

Produce a set of free high school science texts. These texts must be
easily customisable to fit a specific syllabus.

Specific Goals (South African Contributors):

To produce a set of free high school science texts in accordance with
the South African syllabus. The purpose of this is to help provide an
enabling education to students in rural areas.


By producing a range of quality text books, which can be provided
for the printing cost alone, will allow a more active program of
book donations to schools.

The South African Museum has expressed interest in using the final product as part of their Mindspace learning programme.

In other Southern African areas projects like SchoolNet can facilitate distribution of the texts in both electronic and printed form.


There are a number of international projects that can begin building on our work.
