Students Offer Tech Support at Community Thread

March 08, 2019

A group of Stillwater Area High School students have been going to Community Thread to help senior members of the community with technology questions so that they can do more and connect more with their families. 

Imagine growing up in a world where a calculator was an innovative technology and sending a letter was the only way to correspond with someone in California.  In the last twenty years technology has exploded to make lives easier, but some people have missed all of the changes or at least have taken longer to adapt. 

The goal of this group is to help those people and answer their questions in order to make their lives easier and to help connect them with their families.  The group has answered questions from, "how do I do anything on my phone" to "how do I take, send, and save photos from my family members".  One member shared that his family travels for work often and he likes being able to contact them, but there's nobody to teach him how to use his tablet. 

The next Senior Tech Support meeting will be held on Thursday, May 2nd from 2:30-3:30 at Community Thread.
