Mobile Technology Lab (MTL)


The Mobile Technology Lab (MTL) supports Operation: Military Kids by helping to facilitate connections between deployed soldiers and their kids. The MTL laptops contain software and programs for children and youth to send personal messages and pictures to their deployed family members.


The MTL is also utilized by OMK partner organizations such as UNL Cooperative Extension, The National Guard, The American Legion, 4-H clubs, and after school programs who request the lab for events that involve or support military kids. The MTL can be used for events that have a combination of military and non-military youth.


Possible Uses of the MTL

Bringing military and non-military kids together to create a DVD about issues that affect military kids

Doing special projects with an OMK theme in after-school programs

Taking digital pictures at events and making a slide show

Having military kids from OMK youth events send messages, cards, pictures, etc. to deployed family members
