What is a Technology Workshop?
Thanks for the great response to our advertisement in the July issue about our free Technology Workshop to learn to fix computers. It seems that many of you are having a fun summer and just can’t get to the Collinwood Recreation Center from 3-5pm on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, but your questions and interest are great. We thought this month we would answer your questions.
- When will this free workshop end?
This portion of the workshop ends on August 24th, but we are waiting for the approval to continue through December so you have the chance to stop in after school and learn how to be a computer technician.
- Do I have to come every day?
Nope. When you do come we would like for you to stay for the full two hours.
- What age do I have to be?
We only allow high school students (grades 9-12).
- Is their homework and tests?
Not at all. You will learn how to check laptops and desktops to see if they work properly or if they can be fixed. The more sessions you attend the faster you get proficient in the 15-20 specific steps.
- Can we check out my home computer to see if it can be fixed or made to work better?
Yes, we can, if we are caught up with the other work we must complete.
- Do I have to have prior knowledge of computer design and troubleshooting?
None at all! Just come with the desire to learn and we will teach you.
- Are you sure this is absolutely FREE?
You bet. All you do is provide your time and the will to learn!
All great questions and I am sure you will have more for us. Just call me, Gary Minadeo, at 440-840-6164, if you need more information. Please do come to at least one session before August 24th to meet us and see what we are doing; we guarantee that even if it is not right for you that you will see we have a great program that may interest your friends and family.
