S.S.F. school program to unveil $20,000 computer lab

Sunshine Gardens Elementary in South San Francisco will be unveiling a $20,000 computer lab Thursday for its Club Leo J. Ryan after school program, which is run by the Family Service Agency of San Mateo County.

The After School Advantage computer lab, donated by Rhode Island-based GTECH Corp., will be unveiled at 3:30 p.m. with California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell in attendance, as well as GTECH Senior Vice President Alan Eland and Family Service Agency President Laurie Wishard.

Kindergarten through fifth grade students, who are part of the after school program, will give a special performance, according to the family service agency.

GTECH has donated 109 computer labs since 1999 as part of their After School Advantage program, which aims to narrow the “digital divide” between higher and lower-income families, according to the family service agency.

The state-of-the-art lab will be equipped with 15 Apple computers, two laser printers, a photo printer and scanner, and two digital cameras. Teachers at Club Leo J. Ryan will work with the students to help them use the computers for homework and research for reports.

The ceremony will take place at Sunshine Gardens Elementary, which is at 1200 Miller Ave.
