The IBM computers are 386's and a86's and were previously used in the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management. The computers were gifted through a Memorandum of Under- standing between the DOE and the Nye County School District. For the next three months the DOE is going to send computers to 10 different counties adjacent to the Yucca Mountain Project site in. Nevada and California. As of now the DOE has provided over 700 computers to these neighboring school districts. "We have given out better computers to the schools," said DOE Spokesman Erik Olds. "The computers are upgraded and have hard drives, printers, Windows, and other materials that the kids need today." The donations are part of DOE's math and science girl program intended to increase the numbers of students seeking careers in the scientific and technical fields. As of yet, the computers in Nye County haven't been sent to any particular schools according to DOE officials. The district does have them stored in warehouses in Las Vegas and they are scheduled to be in schools soon.
