It is fair to say that most Scheel Center students don’t know much about computers. They don’t have access to one at home. They maybe visit a near-by internet café once or twice a month when they’ve set aside enough spare change. Starting the 2012 school year in January will change that. Thanks to a generous donation made this summer, Scheel Center has installed a computer lab full of brand new laptop and desktop computers. Although students already receive some computer and typing courses through an outside service, this will be the first time that Scheel students have computer access every day. We’re excited to show them how to email, how to do online research, and how to use social networks safely. Mostly, we’re excited to give them the opportunity to learn more about the world in a way that they’ve never connected before. Thanks to your support for making this mind-expanding experience possible.
