One local tech company steps up to help students get virtual learning tools

Central Florida tech company forms non-profit aimed at bridging the digital divide

ORLANDO, Fla. — Aeras Technologies recently launched a Nonprofit Organization, Aeras Foundation; the nonprofit’s mission is to provide essential IT equipment to those in need.

According to a recent study, more than 11 million students in the U.S. don’t have computers for online learning, and during this time technology is a necessity, not a luxury. When Aeras Foundation receives gently used pieces of technology, they wipe all the information, put a new operating system on the device, and redeploy it in the education space.

The Aeras Foundation started an ambassador program at Bishop Moore Catholic High School, and they plan on hosting more Tech Drives, and events throughout Central Florida to help local students get the tools they need during the pandemic.
