Activities

The new school year of the WoodwardMUG Computer Club at The Woodward School is just getting started. Lots of exciting happenings are being planned with both in-person and Skype video conferencing guest speakers.


This year we encourage students to join the Lab Assistants SIG. If you’re interested in learning more about computers, the Lab Assistants SIG is for you!


WoodwardMUG is beginning it’s 21st year at Woodward. We have records of our club activities for the last fourteen years! Visit our Meeting News BLOG to view our past activities.


Did you know that WoodwardMUG was started in December of 1996 and has been operating continuously since then as a group catering to the interests of PC and Mac users? We are an officially registered Users Group with Apple and Microsoft, and many other corporate user group programs. See below for more details.


History of our Fundraising SIG

As our snack sales come to an end, this fall (2016), we were able to purchase eight Lego EV3 robots with curriculum for our new Robotics and Programming classes, and add two more iMacs to the School. Snack sales during the 2013-2014 and 2012-2013 were enough to let us make a substantial donation to the School to pay for four new computers in the library each year. During the 2011-2012 school year, sales allowed us to help refresh all twelve iMacs in the Computer Lab. Snack sales during the 2010-2011 school year allowed us to purchase five new iMacs for the lab. During the 2009-2010 school year, our profits enabled us to purchase three iMacs for the lab. In our first year, 2008-2009, our fundraising efforts allowed us to purchase one iMac for the lab plus a MacBook for our mobile podcasting studio.
