My students need Ram and a solid state hard drive so they can use the driving simulators.

My students live in Camden, N.J. This city has one of the highest crime rates in the country. My students deal with daily; crime, gangs. poverty, no family structure. I go to my students' homes and see their deplorable living conditions. They barely have any furniture, limited lighting, and bug infested rooms. While they deal with all of that many come to school to get a break from their lives and are eager to learn.
One class my students look forward to is Driver Education.
They want to get their drivers license without having to drive illegally, which many do. So many students are bored with school yet are eager to get a class that will be immediately beneficial to them.
Some of my students will wait past their 17th birthday just to take the New Jersey State written test in my class, even though they could go to motor vehicle department and take the test.
The driving simulators in my school are 23 years old. I am trying to upgrade the system so my students can use the new monitors, keyboard and DVD movies. Upgrading the system will allow my students to coordinate each individual driving simulator to the DVD movies they are following. Each students display will record their driving mistakes; steering, turn signals, speedometer, braking and accelerating. The students reactions to their drives won't record properly without being able to have the speed quality of the hard drive to send the signal to the simulator and consequently to the teachers monitor for review.
