Who are we: C Plus What?
C+5 represents the community at Colorado College who all share a common love of technology. Our group is characterized by a group of students from all different backgrounds who all want to share their passion with others. Our organization allows students who would have never met to create lifelong friends and develop valuable computer skills.
A wide variety of computer scientists, engineers, and designers will all tell you that the time they spent playing around with their computers where the times where they learned the most. C+5 looks to foster and develop a new generation of innovators by creating the space and providing the tools to allow them to experiment, test, and develop valuable computer skills while creating lifelong friendships.
We strive to make sure that all feel welcome and all have the equal ability to participate, but we are currently limited by our current hardware setups. Members bring their own technology to share with others but that means that only four students at a time can participate. Our most urgent need right now is to provide to all of our club members with the technology to create and play without having to wait
Why You Should Contribute
Colorado College is a beautiful and innovative school. We have a lot of resources for our outdoor adventure spirits, but we need to also cultivate our indoor minds. Additionally, while CC is a liberal arts institution, STEM study is alive and well. A liberal arts education should include technology education for everyone. Our vision for C+5 is to create a “tinkering” community where game design, app and web coding have a space on campus. No matter their major, interested students can participate with like-minded individuals who aren’t afraid to fail and try again.
Your gift will help us purchase the hardware to make this all a reality. We need your help to purchase the hardware so we can provide our members with the necessary computing power to pursue various projects. We have received enough funding from the school to purchase five computer towers, but we would like to upgrade these computers by purchasing some mid-level graphics cards, processors, monitors, and peripherals parts. If we can meet our goals for the computer parts, we are also looking to purchase Raspberry Pi's, soldering tools, TV’s or consoles. CC has been very supportive, but we need your help to make the project happen. Please make your gift today.
