They worked brilliantly on a project with Mansfield-based campaign #WeMakeICTPossible, founded by three business owners. Students assisted with rebuilding laptops, tablets and desktop systems so that schoolchildren and young people in the community could benefit from obtaining IT equipment where they would otherwise not have the chance to use it.

They refurbished many pieces of equipment so that young people who are experiencing digital poverty in the Mansfield and Ashfield areas could have access to IT.
