The Burton Community Learning Centre has been awarded a grant from the Columbia Basin Trust to promote digital literacy in Burton. With this grant the BCLC will be setting up a “Technology Centre” in the Burton Elementary School. This technology centre will include two digitization and creativity stations. In addition there will be a robotics workshop, where young and old can come out and try their hand at building robots. Courses and workshops will be made available to the public to learn how to take advantage of this technology.
Over the next few months the BCLC will be setting up the technology space, purchasing and setting up equipment. This is an exciting opportunity for Burton.
