Wednesday, September 17, at 7:00 pm in the Hondius Room at the Estes Valley Library, EPICUG will welcome Debbie Holmes from Estes Park Elementary School. Among other responsibilities, Deb is the volunteer coordinator of the Fifth Grade Tech Club. The Tech Club meets two mornings a month to introduce students to the variety interesting computer technologies that they otherwise aren’t exposed to in their education.
The purpose of our meeting with Deb will be to gain an understanding of her program, and to brainstorm ways in which our club might support her efforts. There was a lot of interest expressed by EPICUG members for this topic on our December 2013 survey.
If you have young children or grandchildren or want to learn yourself about Tech Club please attend this meeting. If you have ideas about how children can be encouraged to explore technology, please attend this meeting. The country needs a new generation of geeks and the environment today isn’t as conducive as it was for us older pre-internet guys. Kids need to be creative, not just “users”, not just social.
