IT Club Repair Class

Does your laptop run hot and sound like a jet?
Is your phone screen cracked, but you can’t afford $300 for repairs?
Is your Joy-Con drifting even when you’re not playing Mario Kart?
Do you like to fix used computers and support underserved students?
Do you want to contribute to the efforts in reducing global e-waste? 

Learn how to repair devices quickly and easily in the comfort of your own home with the IT Club Repair Class! No previous experience is necessary.

Repair is an important skill to have throughout life. It reduces the e-waste problem, allows you to circumvent warranties and repair fees, extends the lifetime of devices, creates jobs, and, most importantly, it’s fun!

Never be scared again by expensive phone screen replacements, or annoying laptop fix-ups. Even silly blunders from everyday life, from drink spills on your keyboard to overly dusty laptops, can now be solved simply with a toolbox at your hands. Learning to repair allows you to build the skills for better taking on whatever life throws at you.

Teaching plan

To refurbish computers, we need to buy tools and many replacement components, parts, and software. As a fundraising event, we are offering the IT Club Repair class to the community. In this class, we will teach the following topics: 

  • Lesson 1: About repair and parts of a computer
  • Lesson 2: Servicing a Desktop
  • Lesson 3: Servicing a Laptop
  • Lesson 4: About Thermals
  • Lesson 5: Software Maintenance 
  • Lesson 6: Phone Repairs and Summary 

For those who complete the IT Repair class, you have the option to join the IT Club to contribute to the mission of reducing global e-waste and helping underserved students.  The IT Club is a certified organization to offer the President's Volunteer Service Award (PSVA) to students who volunteer through the IT Club. The IT Club’s PSVA season begins on Sept 1st and ends on Aug.31 the following year.
