To: SchoolForge <>

Hi everyone. I started a campaign to support GNU FisicaLab, the educational
free software for physics. GNU FisicaLab is an educational application for
solving physics problems. This allows students focus in physics concepts when
solving problems, leaving aside the mathematical details. FisicaLab has an
extensive documentation, with a lot of examples, to help the student to
familiarize quickly with the application. See:

Free software is important for education, to not enchain the students in
using privative software packages. Using free software, schools and
universities save money. But, most important, free software gives users the
freedom to control their own computers. And encourages students to learn and
share. They can make copies of the software to take home and to share with
his friends. Read "Why Schools Should Exclusively Use Free Software":

With your support, you will help to expand the range of problems to solve in
FisicaLab, in adding new features, in the availability in other languages and
in many other things. So help FisicaLab to reach 7k at March 31, to give
students a chance of get an ethical education with free software.

Spread the word of FisicaLab’s campaign with your friends, blogs or social
networks. Lets education become free (as in freedom).
