Desktops For Our Desktops

My students need desktop computers for the classroom to complete their laser engraving projects.

My Students

Students best learn science, technology, engineering, art, and math by doing it.

My students come from backgrounds that are underrepresented in STEM fields.

They are predominately minority students that receive free or reduced price lunches. They are full of curiosity and wonder, and are naturally drawn to science and engineering because they can solve relevant problems by discussion, argumentation, and analysis. They also love working with their hands to create models and prototypes. The hands-on nature of STEM helps provide context for their learning.

My Project

We are in the process of converting from laptops to Chromebooks so students can access technology with less technical difficulties. (We have found that lower costing Chromebooks are much better machines than low-end laptops). However, there are still applications that do not yet work on Chromebooks, or need the processing power offered by a desktop with a wired internet connection.

I am asking for these desktop computers to create a station in my room where students can access the software they need.

The computers will primarily be used for work with our laser engraver and for coding our EV3 Lego Mindstorm robots!

I have broken this up into two smaller projects with the hopes of getting 6 desktops.
