Young adults living in the Santa Cruz and San Benito county areas are invited to attend our Free annual summer technology camp! This camp will aid youth and young adults to develop career readiness, manage social interaction and higher education through technology.
This engaging, informative and fun experience is geared specifically for middle and high school students. Students will learn to effectively manage school, work and social interaction through technology. Students will:
develop a strong command of Adaptive technology
master the use of the Bluetooth keyboard to edit and complete assignments; have the skills to email; download applications; take notes; make phone calls; navigate with GPS; and research on the Internet
meet with accessibility engineers and developers at local technology companies (Last year, we had speakers from Apple and Amazon to name a few.)
receive mentor support from other blind and visually impaired adults who have been screened and specially trained to work with students
Each participant will receive an iPad at the end of the five day workshop.
