The Masonic Angel Foundation's Laptops for KidZ project recently donated ten Hewlett Packard Chromebook laptops and four Hewlett Packard multifunction printers to the Gills Club - an educational initiative of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.  The Gills Club is a mobile program that brings STEM educational programs for girls to various educational settings across the area.

Gills Club students will use the technology to analyze and report data findings from ongoing projects conducted by the girls.

The Laptops for KidZ project was launched by the Masonic Angels in 2010 and has delivered thousands of refurbished laptops and tablets to schools across Massachusetts.  Devices are refurbished by the MAF's team of volunteers and then placed with schools and select non-profits for educational use.

"We are proud to support the Gills Club's programs, " reports Masonic Angel Foundation president Robert Fellows. "Technology access for girls is a priority in Laptops for KidZ and the Gills Club compliments our mission very well."

The donated technology will be part of the Gills Club's traveling program for students.  Gills Club staffers bring the girls' STEM experience to schools, museums and other learning environments.
