Seniors learn tech from students

Natrona County residents are encouraged to come to the Casper Senior Center at 11 a.m. to receive free one-on-one tutoring on their cell phones and other mobile devices thanks to a partnership between AARP Wyoming and SkillsUSA.

The training on cell phones and tablets is free and there is no requirement to be an AARP member in order to take part in the event. In addition to the tech tutoring, a free lunch will be provided courtesy of AARP Wyoming.

The tutoring will take place thanks to the work of students from around the state who take part in SkillsUSA, which is having its annual State Leadership and Skills Conference in Casper April 15-17. Over the course of the three day conference, SkillsUSA students compete in leadership and skills competitions.
