“We are very proud of ViewSonic’s position as a global leader providing technology solutions that support collaboration, communication and creativity,” said Jeff Volpe, president of ViewSonic Americas. “With continued distance learning while Los Angeles County schools remain closed, we felt this was the perfect technology to allow students to build, create, and collaborate while sheltering in place. This technology allows students hands-on learning and a creative outlet as they virtually work on STEM and robotic projects with their peers.”
ViewSonic worked closely with United Way of Greater Los Angeles Senior Manager of Corporate Relations, Michelle Reed, who facilitated the donation. “We cannot thank ViewSonic enough for their generous donation of Raspberry Pi Thin Clients for our youth which will help foster curiosity and creativity. During these challenging times, it is important to keep young people occupied and entertained while learning at home. If they are in a Club, Raspberry Pi offers them opportunities to work with other Club members on fun STEM-related projects including coding and robotics,” said Mary Hewitt, executive director, Los Angeles County Alliance for Boys and Girls Clubs.
