Facebook donates 100 computers to Cesar Chavez Academy students
August 23, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Facebook is donated 100 laptop computers to an East Palo Alto school Thursday.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, attend the event, at which Facebook employees presented computers to eighth grade students at Cesar Chavez Academy at 2450 Ralmar Ave.

The giveaway is part of a larger back-to-school laptop giveaway program by Facebook. Two other schools in the Ravenswood City School District will also receive computers — Menlo Park K-8 schools Belle Haven and Willow Oaks.

The program aims to make it easier for students to learn science, technology, engineering and mathematics, also known as STEM subjects.

A tweet from Speier said, “I’m going to help @facebook give 100 laptops to 8th graders ... It’s all about #STEM!”

Ravenswood school district Superintendent Gloria Hernandez said the computers will help bridge the “digital divide” between students in low-income and wealthier areas of the Silicon Valley.
