We all know computers are critical to education these days. More and more programs and classes utilize modern PCs to teach their students new skills, like programming, 3D modeling, rigging, scheduling, and more while providing students with additional avenues to relax and explore new passions.

Intel and iBUYPOWER teamed up with professional race car driver Ryan Tuerck to bring new 11th Gen Intel Core processor PCs to School on Wheels. As a racer, Ryan knows all too well the importance of having the right gear to take your performance to the next level. Everything from designing the car to painting it to racing it requires top-notch computing power.

A Place To Play

The donation was made to School on Wheels as part of Intel’s “Rise, Shine, and Inspire” campaign. Intel’s goal with the campaign is to give back to the community, and we were proud to know that this donation will significantly upgrade their current setup.

School on Wheels has been serving the “skid row” area of Los Angeles for the past 20 years, along with over 400 sites across Southern California—including libraries, shelters, and after-school programs. “Skid row” is, unfortunately, one of the epicenters of homelessness in Los Angeles and in the United States. Many children end up homeless in this area and the Skid Row Learning Center acts as a safe space for them to go after school to escape the reality of the world around them.

At School on Wheels, students will do their homework, work with tutors, hang out with other kids, and play computer games once their homework is done. The new computer systems provided by iBUYPOWER and powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core processor will enable the students to explore not only educational games, but games purely for fun. With the new hardware, the kids will be able to get into the games faster, run better games, and enjoy their precious free time even more.
