Telstra Tech Savvy Seniors
Last week at Tech Savvy Seniors sessions, everyone continued to learn about emails, using phones, tablets, and laptops. There was time for plenty of questions and problem solving.
These sessions are thanks to a partnership with Telstra, the state government, and the State Library of NSW, and are for people with little or no prior experience with technology. While our current sessions are full, we have a waiting list for future ses- sions.
The library has two fun after- school activities for children every week.
The first is Designs From Your Mind LEGO® Club, held every Tuesday afternoon.
This session is for children aged five to 12 years, with a few LEGO® challenges to get everyone creating, and free time to build with the library’s great range of kits.
The other activity is Code Club, held every Thursday afternoon.
At Code Club, we have fun with technology of all kinds. We program animations and games, we do 3D printing, we code Spheros, and have fun with simple electronics or Turing Tumbles.
Code Club is for young people aged 10 years and over. Places are limited in both programs, so book- ings are essential.
