More than $350,000 in opportunity is available to students in participating school districts. Through a unique relationship with a Kentucky company, Dataseam, schools are leveraging scholarships to Morehead State University and the University of Louisville as well as attend state programs to develop their artistic talents and learn to create a business.
Since the program’s beginning, Dataseam has brought over 17,000 computers to coal county school districts. The additional technology allows school districts in the coal counties to advance educational opportunities for their students in ways they would not otherwise be able to do.
Dataseam combines the processing power from these computers in 48 school districts into the largest computing grid of its kind to support research at the University of Louisville’s James Graham Brown Cancer Center to develop life saving cancer treatment drugs. The Cancer Center has created the largest potential cancer drug pipeline in the United States.
