Franklin Institute Science Museum Chooses Linux
Philadelphia PA --
The Franklin Institute Science Museum has installed a Linux Web server
built by LinuxForce Inc. The server is now on line and being
used by The Franklin Institute in their Keystone Science Network.
The network has been designed to create a professional community of
science educators throughout the Eastern half of Pennsylvania.
Christopher Fearnley Senior VP Technology LinuxForce Inc. said
that "LinuxForce is proud to have built the server
and its integrated Linux software that will aid the Keystone Science
Network in promoting teacher professional growth." The Network
has been designed to promote teacher professional growth through the
implementation of K-8 standards-based science kits supported by the
application of network technology.
The Web Server built for the program by LinuxForce Inc.'s
Hardware Division includes the Debian GNU/Linux operating system.
Fearnley commented that the powerful Keystone web server will
meet all current requirements and the challenge of any expansion
beyond the ten core sites located in school districts throughout
the Eastern half of Pennsylvania.

professionals with a Linux base for development activities.
