Get a jump on your spring cleaning and help end the Digital Divide

OSC is partnering with Aeras Foundation to help increase technology accessibility in our community! We are coming together to address the Digital Divide and bridge the gap between families with access to technology and communications tools and those without.

During Otronicon weekend, Aeras Foundation will be hosting a Tech Drive at the Science Center and collecting gently used technology that they will repair and redeploy to local students and families in need. Device donations are being sought from both corporations and individuals.

Join us in ensuring our local students have the technology they need to thrive by donating your gently used laptops and tablets!

Thank you for helping us give those without access to technology the same opportunity as those who do!

After making your donation to the tech drive, please visit Osceola County's STEM Mobile Lab, which will on display at Entrance A next to Aeras Foundation's tent through Monday. The STEM Mobile Lab hosts several fun activities to stimulate learning and discovery. Nurture your burgeoning STEM skills inside this tech oasis, including learning how to program your very own robot! Also, check out flying drone demonstrations at scheduled times.

Drop off location:
Orlando Science Center Entrance A - Bus Loop (Camden Road)
777 E Princeton Street
Orlando, FL 32803

Donations can be made between 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday, February 13 - Monday, February 15.

Please note: If you are planning on making a device donation and attending Otronicon, please drop your technology off at Entrance A before you park or as you are leaving the event.
