For the 2012-13 school year, Uni is considering providing a computers for all subfreshmen. Although the project is not finalized yet, the plan is that Uni will buy each incoming subreshman a computer for the student's use at school and home.
When math teacher Ioana Boca's class tried to use the computer workstations in Room 206 last month, none of them worked. Technology specialist Kathleen Booth initially suspected a hard-drive fail in the main computer. Booth brought the computer to her office. That's when she discovered the damage to the case.
Thanks to a $200,000 donation from two Uni alums, the school was able to make a substantial investment in new equipment over the summer, allowing students to learn electronically in the classroom. Using about $60,000 of that gift, Uni purchased 40 MacBook laptops and 40 iPod Touches. Luke Karmazin has more about the mobile labs inside.
