Summary

This project will allow us to install individual computer work stations for the sixth-graders who receive free weekly computer classes at our RIESTER Computer Lab. These work stations will give the kids better, more usable space and improve their ability to focus on learning, and not on where to put their pencils and classroom materials.

Challenge

In 2018, more than 95 6th-graders attended our free weekly computer classes (not all at once, of course). Since we only have a few tables, the students didn't have adequate space for their keyboard and mouse, or any place to put papers or workbooks. Also, the RIESTER Foundation has generously given us more computers, which means we can have more students in each class. This is great, but we don't have any place to put the new computers where the kids can use them.

Solution

Local carpenters will build and install 20 workstations, specially designed to provide each student with enough space for the tools and materials they need in class. No more juggling workbooks, pencils, mouse, etc. -- students can concentrate on learning about computers and how to use them to do their school assignments. With the new work stations, we will be able to use all the donated computers so there will be 7 additional students in each class -- a total of around 120 for the coming year.

Long-Term Impact

Education is fundamental to improving lives. It is vitally important that young people have education experiences that stimulate their natural curiosity and interest in learning. Our classes enhance the students' education well beyond what local schools are able to provide. A more organized work space will mean we can have more students in each class, and each student will have good room for study materials. This project will help more students get an outstanding start to a better life.
