Why don't you install Debian or similar on their laptops and give them
livecds if the GNU/Linux versions of Octave don't give you those

At least that's what I did, and it seemed to work. Most didn't seem to
mind to have a few gigs of their laptops dedicated to a free OS, and
they got to code numerical analysis. Several of them brought their
laptops for me to install Debian on them with Octave and other free
numerical software.

This may not be a viable solution for you, but I personally feel that
at the education level, Octave and GNU go together hand-in-hand.
