Ideas to work with your hub members



If you have any questions about this page or if you find any errors, please write a message to the support wall and a Labdoo volunteer will help resolve it. Thank you for helping to improve our wiki pages.

Here is a list of possible topics for the school hub to work on:

  • Introduction to the Labdoo Project.
  • Laptop Drives.
    • Reuse – Discover idle laptops around you and put them into a better use.
    • Repurpose – An old laptop can have a new story. It can help provide education resources for underprivileged children.
    • Recycle – By properly recycling a laptop, 41 lbs of carbon emission will be prevented from entering the atmosphere. This is equivalent to recycling 270 soda cans.
    • Spread awareness among family and friends.
    • Set a goal on the number of laptops to be rescued for the semester.
    • Plan a laptop drive campaign and design a flyer for it. Check out the Labdoo toolkit for some ideas and templates:
