Workshops

Below is a selection of some of the workshops we offer. Workshop topics vary each month, and are offered three times towards the end of the month. If interested, please check the calendar often or sign up for our newsletter to learn about what's coming up!

Intro to Smartphones:

This one-session workshop is designed for students who want to learn more about smartphones and how they work. Emphasis is on Android, but the topics covered apply to all smartphones. Topics include operating systems, phone manufacturers and models, home screens, notifications, apps, and basic phone settings. You don't need to have a smartphone, just an interest in learning about them! Students can bring their own phones or can try out their skills on Tech Lab practice phones. If students have specific questions about their own phones or want to learn advanced smartphone topics, we recommend attending one of our tutoring sessions.
