Rotterdam: Tech Club's whiteboards do the math

Bradt Primary School was the club's first customer. The boards have since become very popular, and the Technology Club has orders from teachers at Pinewood Intermediate School and Draper Middle School.

The club is selling the whiteboards for $1 apiece, and the money they raise is going to go toward materials and potentially a scholarship.

The students have been working as a team to get the job done quickly. Delmonaco, a sophomore, said it's frustrating when everyone isn't there to lend a hand.

"It's been annoying at times when not everyone shows up, but it's been fun," he said.

All four of the students want to study some sort of engineering when they graduate so they said working with the tools in the technology department has been exciting for them.

Sophomore Lewis said, "It's been fun working with the equipment. With blades spinning at umpteen rpms, you have to know what you're doing."

The Technology Club members said they got to visit their old classrooms when they dropped off the boards to the younger students, and they watched as the students used them during a math class.

"It makes you feel good to know that you aren't just making random projects," Delmonaco said.
