Not Your Average Vending Machine
David Murray, Community College Daily
In Michigan, Grand Rapids Community College students are preparing for exams with the help of an unusual resource: a laptop vending machine.
Located in the GRCC Student Community Center’s counseling area, the machine dispenses laptops that students can use for free by swiping their college ID card. When finished with their work, they insert the laptop back into the machine, where its batteries are charged for the next user.
The idea is to make sure all students have access to the resources they need to be successful.
