State Museum offers Digital Skills for Seniors classes this Fall



Following a successful pilot program this summer, the Wyoming State Museum announces it will host two more Digital Skills courses this fall.

Digital Skills for Seniors is a free, eight-week course that will gradually introduce skills that older adults can use to simplify and improve their everyday lives. Made possible by a Spectrum Digital Education Grant, these courses will help participants get comfortable using smart phones and tablets to access the internet, utilize tools like the magnifying glass, connect with friends and family on social media, and more. Each class will build on the previous lesson and will include time for one-on-one assistance and practice. 

Participants can bring their own device from home or borrow a tablet from the museum for free. 

Apple (iOS) focused classes will take place on Tuesdays from 1-2:30 p.m. in the Wyoming State Museum classroom, beginning on Oct 5, and ending on Nov 30.

The Android class will meet on Thursdays from 1-2:30 p.m., beginning on Oct 7, and ending on Dec 2.

Registration is completely free and is open until Oct 1. To register, call Melisa McChesney at 307-630-2573. Space in this class is extremely limited, so we encourage those who are interested to sign up as soon as possible. 

This program is offered in collaboration with Wyoming Relay.
