Each year, the technology at CHS ages, creating more and more reason to replace outdated and rundown computers of the school’s Tech Ed department. This year, new computers are being delivered for Tech Ed classes and the Project Lead the Way program.

Many students are very excited to get new computers because the old computers are difficult to use and don’t always cooperate. They crash frequently, run slow, and/or won’t install the latest software.

“The computers don’t even work anymore and they take forever to load,” sophomore Pho Bee expressed.

The old computers have many problems due to the processors and lack of memory, and sometimes they do not even let students or teachers log on. New computers will benefit the CHS technology classes.

“They replaced desktop and laptop computers that were old and slow with missing keys, etc., so we are very grateful for their arrival,” Tech Ed teacher Eric Lund said.

Provided by the BCPS Career and Technology Education office, 20 new computers arrived on September 26. These computers have new software available for the students. The software will introduce the students to what is used in professional practice in the real world.

“The computers will eventually include Autodesk Inventor software, which is a primary Computer Aided Design software used by the architecture and engineering industries,” Mr. Lund stated.

The computers are different from the old computers because they are all desktops rather than laptops. The new computers are also much faster and more reliable than the new computers.

Tech Ed students and teachers are excited to use the new computers.

“I’m thrilled to have reliable and fast computers for my students to use, and the software will introduce them to what is used in professional practice in the real world,” Mr. Lund remarked.

Students are very excited that the technology is improving every year in CHS.

“The technology is a step further from what we have in the past and we are improving day by day,” sophomore Lynny Luu stated.
