Los Altos – EqOpTech of Los Altos, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit is teaming up with Integrated Device Technology (IDT) to redeploy used laptops to provide equal access to technology, as part of an ongoing computer reuse initiative to benefit needy students and minimize e-waste.
Since 2015, EqOpTech has launched a program to recycle, refurbish and redeploy unwanted laptops to support and teach the Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) program benefiting underserved students in San Jose, Mountain View and Los Altos. Kids from low-income families will now have easy access to computers for home use to take online classes such as Khan Academy and collaborate with classmates in online research.
IDT, a leader in semiconductor solutions, has donated its surplus laptops to support EqOpTech's computer reuse program. IDT has generously installed new hard disk drives onto the donated laptops helping to prolong their service life. EqOpTech will then refurbish and reinstall all operating systems, drivers, and software to restore the computer to its original full functionality. Over the last two years, EqOpTech has given a new and purposeful second life to hundreds of used laptop computers and put them back to productive use for students in need.
