In an unveiling ceremony Tuesday morning at Druid Hills Academy, hundreds of students at the Project L.I.F.T. school were handed brand new laptops designed just for grade school children.
The project, One Laptop Per Child helped with the goal of bringing more than 2,000 of the units to Charlotte for distribution to West Charlotte elementary schools.
"The idea about these specific laptops came about a year ago when we had a chance to visit a school in Miami that was a part of the one to one initiative. And so it was just a perfect fit for the work that we're trying to do with project LIFT," said Denise Watts with Project L.I.F.T.
Project L.I.F.T. aims to boost the academic achievement and success of students in West Charlotte's schools.
Druid Hills Principal Alison Hiltz says so much of an elementary education involves the internet. Interactive lessons on a laptop many of these children didn't have access to until now.
