The first grade students at Berry Elementary School recently received a generous donation, free computers for each student. The TechnoCycle 2012 Outreach program with the support of TECHNIP provided more than a hundred refurbished internet-ready computers to each first grade student. TechnoCycle says it wants to help students bridge the digital divide, and it chose Berry Elementary because the school is dedicated to educating its students about how they can have a tremendous impact in our environment.
Teacher Erin Chavez said they are excited, humbled, and gracious to be a part of providing this opportunity to the students.
TechnoCycle believes the donation will allow the students to be connected to the school and their teachers in ways that was previously inexistent due to the constraints on the children’s families. The company is also going to service the computers for an entire year for free.
