Hardware to Schools
Over the years, we have contributed towards aiding students and schools in digital inclusion with the distribution of refurbished computers donated from our valuable industry partners.

How can members of the public help?
To keep the momentum going, Penang Science Cluster now accepts donations of computers (new and used) and accessories from members of the public.
After receiving a donation, Penang Science Cluster will execute basic refurbishment on the computers before engaging with Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri Pulau Pinang (Penang State Education Department) to connect with students and schools in need.
