Computers are Ready to Go!

I went over to meet the young men who worked on refurbishing the computers for the Bingerville school. I got a look at our computers had the chance to learn a little bit about them. 

They are all only about 16 or 17 years old!
They are students in one of our alternate education programs called AACT or Academy of Architectural and Contemporary Themes

The one in the blue, Jonathon, is the leader on the project. He worked with a team of about 5 other young men to do the work of refurbishing old computers and bring them back to life. 

The project not only helps people in the community and around the world, but also contributes to the ecology of the planet, by potentially lessening the amount of computers to be added to the dump. 

Here, they are  setting it for French language and adding a new card...

It's so exciting! I can't believe its happening!
