Guam - Students at Weipat High School in Chuuk will soon have a fully functioning computer lab, thanks to a partnership between the Guam Community College and the Cuthbert Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping build capacity and increase opportunities for students in the Federated States of Micronesia. The partnership is funded by an $86,000 grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior.
Today, GCC and Cuthbert personnel loaded computers and other grant-funded items into a 20' container. Once it arrives in Chuuk, the materials will allow officials there to convert an abandoned classroom into a fully-functioning computer lab for the high school's 200 students.
