    3434Does your organization have an application template you would like to see students use? If so, please provide it now. Please note that it is a very good idea to ask students to provide you with their contact information as part of your template. Their contact details will not be shared with you automatically via the GSoC 2011 site.

    5860Anything else you'd like to tell us?
     61  One of the principle use cases for the BCCD is as the OS of choice for a project called LittleFe ( LittleFe is a small, portable cluster designed to foster teaching parallel programming and computational science in small educational institutions that can't otherwise afford cluster resources (or even time on other institutions' resources). The BCCD's support for these institutions is two-fold: (a) as the installed OS on LittleFe units; and (b) as a temporary development platform on workstations.
     62        This is an important relationship as the LittleFe project has secured funding from both Intel and the SuperComputing conference to build and disseminate at least 20 LittleFe units within the summer and fall of 2011. With the pending distribution of these units, the BCCD's usage and community will increase significantly, providing any new developer in the project an opportunity to interact with technology and science educators all over the country.
