CDIT has been committed to distributing technology resources since its founding in 2003. One of the early teen programs taught students how to build their own computer, and at the end, they got to keep it. That model reflects CDIT’s mission to build twenty-first century skills and provide access to technology in the home.
Usually CDIT distributes refurbished desktop computers to its graduates, but to be eligible to participate in Tech St@rs: Digital Design students had to have completed CDIT’s compute basics program. That means they already received desktops when they graduated the first time, so CDIT devised a new way to reward these students’ continuing excellence: tablets.
At the end of the night, the students took home their new tablets while parents beamed with pride as they celebrated their students’ accomplishments.
