Holding a remote workshop with Northampton University student group

Last month Egle (@seplute) held a mapping session over Skype with Northampton University student group. The students quickly got hooked on mapping, claiming that it was “really addictive”, and mapped a few hundred buildings in the hour or so of mapping! We had Rhobi join us to answer questions about FGM as well, and the students were really engaged.
