On Tuesday, June 20th, New Star staff and representatives from Comcast NBCUniversal will host a hands-on Tech Time Open House from 10am to 11am at New Star’s Chicago Heights location. The Open House will serve as the launch of New Star’s new Tech Coaching Center, which offers classes designed to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities use technology to achieve greater independence. These classes were made possible through a grant from Comcast NBCUniversal, in collaboration with The Arc.
Open House attendees will have the opportunity to try out New Star’s newest iPads, iPods, and Abilities apps, register for its Tech Coaching Center, and learn about Comcast NBCUniversal’s Internet Essentials program, which provides low-cost Internet service to eligible low-income families. Attendees can also enter for a chance to win a laptop, generously donated by Comcast NBCUniversal.
