Brilliant Writers Need Printers
My students need four printers and ink for our computer lab.
You can help us! We are a small charter that has one computer lab. There are no student accessible printers. Teachers require printed copies of research papers, etc. and most students do not have technology at home so they stay after school but we don't have a budget to buy what our kids desperately need!
Our students are high achievers from economically diverse communities in Maryland.
After being selected by lottery, they are exposed to accelerated math, science and liberal arts programs. Many of our kids qualify as farms and in general do not have any access to technology at home. We use our computer lab to teach them how to produce college level work. Half of the student body stays after daily and many come to school voluntarily for Saturday school. We have students in middle school learning Pre-Calculus and 12th graders interning in Applied Physics Labs at local universities.
Our students are beating the odds! By having the ability to print at school, they will be able to produce college level work/research papers. Many of our students do attend a local community college during free periods in their day. Many have no access to technology outside of school and printing at the local library is difficult on parents. Our computer lab will be utilized in a new way! Our new journalism class plans to print its very first newsletter as well!
Donations to this project will make a difference by simplifying teachers and students lives.
Many of us teachers print science fair research papers at our homes for our students. The school has just 2 teacher copiers that are quite limited in location within the building. Turning in properly formatted papers is a skill that our kids need to master in order to be successful in college! Please help us to make our media/computer lab a very useful place for students to spend their time!
