Free Informative Tech Session for Seniors

Original post made by Jonathan Park, Midtown, on Dec 5, 2018

A fun and interactive tech session hosted by Paly and Gunn students at the Mitchell Park Library on Dec 8. Students will teach simple programming, answer tech questions, and assist with any tech problems. Food and drinks are offered as well.

Here is the detailed schedule:

Who: Anyone who is 55+ year old (no experience needed)
When: Dec 8 (Sat) 10am - noon (you can come any time during this 2 hour period)
Where: Mitchell Park Library Tech Lab (2nd floor)
Address: 3700 Middlefield Rd, Palo Alto, CA 94303
Organizer: Palo Alto High and Gunn High students who work for AI4Seniors (non-profit organization).

Please come by to learn how to program and connect with students. It is a great opportunity for you to create your own code in a fun and simple way that you can show your friends and family. Also, please bring any questions you have regarding technology, such as your phone, iPad, or computer. Students will be answering individual questions regarding technology.

This event is to honor "The Hour of Code," which takes place every year during the Computer Science Education Week. Ages vary from 4 to 104; however, it is generally the younger who partake in this event. This upcoming event will be focused towards seniors rather than youngsters.
