Giving Computer Science Students the Technological Advantage

My students need 31 computers to update the current class set of computers.

My Students

Technology is always advancing. In order to keep up and allow students access to the most up-to-date software available for learning about computer science, our computers need to be replaced. Their service warranty has expired and the current set continues to perform worse each day.

Students in computer science classes are from all grade levels.

They are a fun bunch of students that are very eager to learn as much as they can about computer science. They never stop asking what's coming next, because they are so excited to see all the amazing possibilities computer science offers.

My Project

Students will be able to develop applications through programming with reduced lag and without having to worry about the computer freezing. It will also provide them with access to new software programs that students can learn from which they currently can't use because the current computers can't handle the software.

Students will all the more excited to keep learning as they will be able to develop more advanced programs and use the latest software.

They will also become more excited when they won't have to worry about computers crashing often, which has occasionally left some students without a computer to use while it had to be fixed.
