Executive Summary

Organizational Opportunity, Need, or Problem

What organizational opportunity, need, or problem is being addressed through this project?  How will technology support and enhance existing programs, or enable new programs within the organization?  What specific populations do these programs serve?  How will technology help the programs better serve these populations?

This project is addressing the need for a Science and Technology school on the island for students that live far away from traditional schools. This school will have new technology, which will educate the students on the uses and also studying indigenous resources on the island. This school will serve all populations, but primarily the teenagers who will be the leaders of the future.

Project Summary

Briefly, what is to be accomplished by the end of the semester?  What are the main outputs to be created by the students?  What needs to be accomplished by the organization prior to final delivery of the products?

By the end of the semester, we want to have created different use scenarios for the computer lab that will be constructed inside the school.

We want to assess the technology inside the school that the students and faculty will be using. We will evaluate the technology that is available in Sao Tome and find best practices in the U.S. or other countries that have successfully used this model.
