Additionally, through the donation of refurbished computers, the re//BUILD.IT program aims to bridge the digital divide that persists amongst those without access to a home computer. “For anyone, simply having a home computer is empowering and enriches educational experiences through technology. For students of school age specifically, the addition of a home computer to their routine puts the world at their fingertips, paving the way for achievement in school and their future careers” said Jessica Moyes, Executive Director of STEAM Education Centres.
“We are thrilled to accept this support from Green Lane Community Trust Fund” said Moyes. “This gift will ensure we can continue to safely dispose of e-waste, and better prepare the next generation in an unpredictable and quickly advancing world, while supporting the current adult workforce in furthering their technical skills and knowledge”.
