BoomerTECH Adventures is excited to announce that we are partnering with several Adult Education Centers to offer Exploramas around the state of Maine. What is an Explorama you ask? Read on!

Technology Exploramas for Boomers and Seniors*

Getting Comfortable with Technology 

Cousine jeanWhen it comes to your technology, do you ever feel like you don’t know what you don’t know? The Explorama is an opportunity to ask big and small questions and investigate the possibilities of today’s technology. Digital devices are our portal to a greater world! They allow us to connect, create and continue to contribute. Join us at the Merrymeeting Adult Education Center in Topsham to learn basic tasks, explore hidden features, and play with apps that can enrich our everyday lives. This relaxed, hands-on event, presented by boomers and seniors, will answer your technology questions and teach you some new tricks related to your smartphone, tablet, laptop or other digital device. We promise you will leave feeling more comfortable with technology, plus learn at least three new, cool functions on your device.  Be sure to bring your devices with you!
