Introducing Nautilus: Our 2015 Recycle Rush robot!
Can a computer change a student's life?
At many schools, computers are an important tool in the classroom, giving students access for researching assignments and doing homework. But at Rosemary Anderson High School (RAHS), an alternative school in Portland, nearly 190 students must share the school's computer lab, which has only 20 working computers.
The Lake Monsters are sponsoring a computer drive now through Spring to collect used laptops, notepads and tablets.
The robotics team will refurbish the computers and donate them to at-risk students at RAHS, which has two campuses in north and east Portland. RAHS is the "last chance" to complete a high school education for students who have dropped out of school, been expelled or are homeless.
Donations can be dropped off at the Lakeridge High School main office during open hours. For special drop-off arrangements, email email@example.com or call 503-756-5425.
