FCW is pleased to be one of the recipients of a grant from the Google Data Centers Grants Fund of Tides Foundation. This grant will be used to enhance our classroom with more modern computers. These will be able to run Windows and Linux and set up to allow FCW to more efficiently conduct workshops and training in programming languages, operating systems, computer applications, CAD, engineering software, networking, robotics, and embedded controllers.
FCW is working with the local pubic schools, CCC&TI, the Catawba Valley Science center and other organizations to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) to residents of Caldwell, Catawba, Burke, and Alexander counties. We hope this will be only the first of several grants to aid this mission.
