School Computers Helping To Fight Cancer

The Johnson County Schools District purchased 156 new Mac computers this week, which will give its students access to high-tech STEAM classrooms.But, when the students aren’t learning with the computers, the University of Louisville James Graham Brown Cancer Center will be using them for its research.The new computers are a part of a state-wide program organized by Dataseam, which connects school computers to create a large system that is used in the research process for new cancer medications.The school participates in a program that allowed them to purchase the computers at a fraction of the regular cost. More than 30 KY counties participate in the program.
