Students in Web & Coding classes were excited to spend time last week setting up and moving equipment into new space for their Virginia STAR computer refurbishment lab.

The Virginia Student Training and Refurbishment Program (Virginia STAR or VA STAR) is a state-wide program that teaches students to refurbish surplus computer hardware from government agencies and private companies. The refurbished computers are donated to families, organizations, and school districts that wish to use them. Through participation in the program, students work towards earning industry-standard certifications which can pave the way for both higher education and well-paying jobs.
