Danville, VA- Students from seventh through twelfth grade get the chance to tear down and build up computers through a summer program at DCC.

Roughly 20 kids are anxious to attend class each day through a church based tutorial program that has 26 sites in the Danville, Pittsylvania County & Caswell County N.C. area.

At the end of the eight week course, they will receive a very valuable award for their efforts.

"It is very exciting that you get to build your own computer from scratch then you get to take it home with you and use it and show it off and tell them that you built it yourself" said Aniyah King, a 13-year-old student.

"We are encouraging students to participate in STEM activities, which are science, technology, engineering and math, and we partnered with DCC last year to develop this program" said Carlton Hemingway, program overseer.

This is the second year for the project,  which depends on local funding to operate.

For more information, you can call Hemingway at 434-835-5200 or Executive director Kenny Lewis at 434-710-6100.
