Columbine High School is hoping to power its students to a high-tech future with a little bleach.
The school is currently third in Clorox's Power A Bright Future competition, which will award a $50,000 grant to the school that gathers the most votes online, and $25,000 grants to the next six vote-getters.
Columbine is currently third in the “explore” category, which focuses on enriching students' learning experience. If Columbine wins the $50,000 grant, it plans to purchase 60 iPads and Apple TVs with HDMI cables for every teacher.
"This will give each student the opportunity to access the ever-expanding world of mobile knowledge and technology that is essential to prepare them for a future of success," Mary Tedford, director of the Frank DeAngelis Columbine High School Academic Foundation, said in a news release.
Tedford said the school's current technology is outdated and in need of a serious upgrade.
