New computers in the lab

New computers for Escuela Integrada’s computer lab

Nehemiah Project donates new computers for Escuela Integrada computer lab

The Nehemiah Project donated 23 new laptop computers for the computer lab at Escuela Integrada! The new computers will be used for both the elementary and middle school levels, serving students from first through ninth grade.

“This donation allows each student to use a computer during computer classes and perform the exercises and tasks that the teacher needs,” said Hernan Garcia, program director of Escuela Integrada.

This gift helps expand the technology education curriculum at Escuela Integrada and will equip students with tools for the future. Having access to the new computers will also contribute to the learning process of the students, said Garcia.

“We believe that technology is fundamental in the educational development of students,” Garcia said. “These computers had long been a necessity, a dream, and now they are a reality.”

Founded by Paul Peters, the Nehemiah Project is a network of community partners who hope to have a lasting impact on future generations.
