Tifton, Ga. (WALB) - Siemens Corporation is donating 300 Chromebooks to the Georgia Youth Science and Technology Center (GYSTC) campuses across Southwest Georgia.

This donation will help students learn in new ways. They hope this encourages more corporations to do the same.

The Chromebook donations are geared to help children make up for the year of learning because of the pandemic. They have added hands-on activities that children can have access to for afterschool learning purposes.
