HEF’s grant project will support the expansion of eSports clubs across HCPS middle schools to increase student connection with their school community, reduce negative behavior, and improve attendance, well-being, and academic performance in math and science.
Thank you, Meta, Henrico Data Center! We are honored to be chosen and excited to see this project in action. And thank you for the exciting tour of the data center!
