Got Tec! Richmond
Organized by: Jocelyn Marencik
I am a sophomore in the Center for Information Technology at Deep Run High School in the Richmond, VA area. With the combination of my two passions - technology and community service, I hope to give our surrounding schools the opportunity to learn with the aid of technology. Our city schools have very little technology available to the students and teachers, given budget constraints. My goal is to see people in our area and beyond, feel the same excitement, and find it in their hearts to contribute to this project. So far, I have crocheted hats and blankets for the funds needed, and a few extremely generous businesses and individuals have contributed to my project. My goals for the future of this endeavor are to help as many surrounding schools as possible. I would like to see these schools acquire the technology needed in their classrooms to help them move forward with their twenty-first century skills and gain confidence using them. Down the road, I would like to see my project grow beyond the Richmond area, and help children statewide. After that, I would like to see this project move on to assisting children in other states. Please join me in helping students and teachers get their hands on the needed electronics/technology, so that they too can share my passion.
