The computer center is usually a given as far as where a lot of the kids go after school. While they may like Gabe and the Guerilla Arts Program (students usually have to complete a 45 minute lesson before having access to the rec room), at the end of the day, it’s the computer they want, and the chance to chat about their friends on Facebook.
So, what happens when the computers go down? It was like a ghost town – at least the day that I went there. Kids ran in, and ran right back out when Mr. Ira Brown, one of the site monitors, told them the computers were down. But one of the students, Myana, decided to challenge Jati to a match of Connect 4. Yes, the game still exists, and guess who won?
