Target Logistics donates iPads for learning lab in North Dakota a school

Target Logistics, featured in the January cover story in Gas Oil & Mining Contractor, announced a donation of 20 iPads to the Kildeer Public Schools in North Dakota. The company, which also announced the construction of a new 230-room hotel for oil workers in Stanley, N.D., gave the tablet computers to the school district after funding for the iPad lab was redirected to other school needs.

“The iPads not only get the school children excited about the lessons, but also allow children to learn at their own pace,’’ said school superintendent Gary Wilz.

Boston-based Target builds and operates accommodations for oilfield workers in North Dakota and Texas. Construction of the Stanley Hotel began during  the winter and will be complete by this summer. The complex is adjacent to the company’s Stanley Cabins, and will expand the overall complex to 500 beds.

To staff this and its other operations, Target has hired 600 workers over 18 months and expects to add another 300 employees this year.
