Several students and faculty members from Paul Robeson High School traveled to the University of Pennsylvania on Wednesday to pick up a much-needed donation of computer equipment.
Penn donated about 90 computers to the West Philadelphia school, mostly Dells and a few Macs, as well as hard drives, monitors, and projectors. The new equipment will replace the school’s older fleet of computers, which are running outdated versions of operating systems, like Windows XP, Windows 2000, or open-source freeware.
