In its bid to raise the level of participation from local school districts, Apple Computer Inc. on Thursday announced an initiative that will tie the company's products, retail locations and school districts together.
Beginning January 29 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm Apple will kick off ' School Night at the Apple Store.' Teachers from local schools will launch the program in select Apple stores throughout the U.S., where they will talk about technology and education. The inaugural sessions will also feature student projects completed using Apple technology such as iMovie, iPhoto and other applications.
The following Apple retail stores will host a School Night kick-off event on Wednesday, January 29 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.: CambridgeSide (Cambridge, MA), Lenox Square (Atlanta, GA), Palo Alto (Palo Alto, CA), Pasadena (Pasadena, CA), SoHo (New York, NY), Tysons Corner (McLean, VA), and Woodfield (Schaumburg, IL).
Beginning February 4, schools can reserve their own School Night at a local Apple retail store. More information on the initiative is available from Apple's education Web site.
