Even though the equipment is going to EduCycle, you will still need to fill out a Material Management Service Request (MMSR), which can be found on the Forms Repository. Refer to the MMSR Instructions (PDF) and be sure to follow existing property management policies.
We’re always seeking student volunteers that are interested in gaining skills and experience by helping with our computer upgrades.
Frequently asked questions are answered to help you learn more about the program, how to volunteer, and request an EduCycle computer.
