The computer group from the Trenton Boys/Girls Club visited our museum
today. They arrived in a full-size yellow school bus -- it's part of
Fred's dream to see the IA parking lot full of those someday. Anyway,
there were 8 kids and an adult chaperone. They toured our computer
exhibits from 5:15 to 6:45. The kids were all high school age with
decent knowledge of Windows and networking, but not much else. They were
all polite and smart. It is good to see that these kids are interested
in tech and they all said they plan to attend college, despite having
limited means and opportunities.
After the computer museum tour, they had a pizza party. Their bus was
late getting back, so they looked around the NJARC museum, and they
liked that part too.
The chaperone gave Fred a $75 donation, and said she'll try to bring
these kids (and other kids) to VCF East.
Several of the kids told me the experience was a lot of fun for them,
and that they learned a lot.
A very rewarding evening!
