A group of fourteen students from Prospect School are creating a unique digital footprint, turning old and broken Chromebooks into working machines – thanks to initial funding from Waitākere Ranges Local Board, Auckland Council reports. The year 5 and 6 students started the West Tech Project in 2021, which aims to bridge the digital inequality gap, providing opportunity for students and whānau to learn technical skills, and reducing waste going to landfill. Project coordinator Jewelz Petley says that the project has fantastic potential.
