EUGENE, Ore. -- The Boys and Girls Club of Emerald Valley unveiled their brand new tech lab on Wednesday.
IGT's After School Advantage Program donated $15,000 that was used to buy 16 Dell desktop computers, monitors, software, headphones and furniture for the lab.
"If we can kind of kid proof it where they can't get themselves into trouble, that's the best way to go and they can learn a lot more without having to stop and say hey, teacher/staff this one is broken again or whatever, we shouldn't have any problems for a long time with these," said Aaron Haack, CEO of The Boys and Girls Club.
The new computer lab will provide members of the Boys & Girls Club with essential computer literacy skills that will help them succeed in the future.
"They'll be a lot more qualified just based on the technology that we have," Haack added.
This is the sixth 6th IGT After School Advantage computer lab in Oregon and the 295th lab worldwide.
