USED LAPTOP DONATIONS NEEDED BY PS10 FACELAB COMMITTEE

 

FaceLab is a family engagement initiative that trains parent volunteers in K-8 schools to support teachers in leading hands-on robotics and technology activities with students. PS10’s FaceLab Committee is offering an EV3 Lego Robotics workshop to all 4th grade classes this year. Class 4-411 currently has 15 teams building robots and are ready to move into the programming stage but do not have enough laptops available for all teams. 

 

Do you, someone you know or your company have used, working laptops that you would like to permanently donate to PS10’s FaceLab? 

 

Laptops can either be PC or Mac and must meet the requirements listed at the bottom of this post. 

 

If you have questions about whether your old laptop will work for our needs, please contact ps10facelab@gmail.com

 

Do you have ideas on where to request used laptop donations from? Please contact ps10facelab@gmail.com

 

*Note: Please make sure all confidential, personal information is removed before donating a laptop to the FaceLab Committee.

 

VOLUNTEERS: If you would like to join the FaceLab Committee and teach future workshops, please join our Konstella Committee! If you have a 4th grader, please keep an eye on your Konstella class page as we will request volunteers from your class when it’s your class’ workshop time.
