Councilwoman Samuel handed over the tablets — which were paid for by the Brownsville medical center — to reps for Elite Learners amid a ceremony at PS 284 on Osborn Street near Sutter Avenue on Jan. 28.
Hospital honchos caught wind of the need for the tablets, which allow kids in School District 23 to program and control Lego Mindstorm automatons as part of the education group’s Elite Robots curriculum, after Samuels praised the program at a meeting attended by Brookdale’s head of IT, according to Brookldale Vice President Khari Edwards.
And it turned out Brookdale had some left-over 10-inch tablets that didn’t intergrate with the rest of its systems, making the donation a no-brainer for the medical center, according to Edwards.
“It worked out amazingly,” he said. — Colin Mixson
