Scottsdale, AZ (May 2, 2011). In these tough economic times, everyone seems to be cutting back. This is certainly true for our nation's schools, most of which struggle to stay within the constraints of small budgets even during more prosperous times. Symmetry Software has teamed up with Teach For America to provide free handheld calculators to these struggling schools nationwide.
In 2010, Symmetry Software celebrated the 10th anniversary of the launching of our flagship website, PaycheckCity. It's been a big hit with payroll departments all over the country, and in celebration of our success, Symmetry's founder Tom Reahard, decided to "give back." Symmetry' hopes to make a difference in our under-served schools. We are distributing Texas Instruments TI-84 scientific calculators to help kids in underprivileged schools.
For every 50,000 visits to PaycheckCity, Symmetry Software will donate a Texas Instruments TI-84 scientific calculator to an underprivileged school in America.
Schools everywhere are slashing budgets and many (especially those in poor neighborhoods) cannot afford to equip their classrooms with modern educational tools. Symmetry works with Teach for America to identify schools who will receive the calculators.
Why calculators? Math scores of American students continue to drop when compared to other developed nations. We want to do our part to reverse this trend. The folks at Symmetry are a bunch of geeks and there is nothing we would like better to help in our geeky way....scientific calculators! (the next best thing to PaycheckCity calculators).
The more you visit the site the more calculators get to kids who need them. After ten years, PaycheckCity continues to grow and at this pace we will be donating hundreds of calculators annually.
