Hooray! This project is fully funded

This is a companion proposal to "Computer Club T-shirt Business - Personal Computer". Herzl's Computer Club has started a t-shirt business. Theodore Herzl is an elementary school in Chicago's westside. The digital t-shirts we make in computer club have been so popular that we decided to start a business around them. I teach technology classes at Herzl. I have seen first hand how an engaging project can make students want to learn. Our emerging t-shirt business is attracting much interest among students at all levels. Computer Club has 15-20 students at any given time, and more students may be involved in this project through classroom activities. This proposal is for a photo quality printer and scanner. A high-end printer is needed to make t-shirt transfers that are attractive and competitive with other vendors. We also need a printer that can printer wide sheets, larger than the standard 8.5". The printer I am requesting is the Epson Photo Stylus 1280. A photo-quality scanner is also needed for our business. This allows us to product quality reproductions of our customer's family pictures. We will be able to incorporate old and new pictures into our shirts. I am requesting the Epson Perfection 4490 Photo - flatbed scanner. My students love to work with images. They show a lot of respect for family pictures, both present and historical. This exposure and connection helps to expand their world in a positive way. They also love to work with the technologies, and to research and experiment on how to get the best results. Acquisition of a quality printer and scanner will allow us to further develop this wonderful learning experience.
