Minneapolis: On Saturday, Sept. 23, PACER’s Simon Technology Center will provide an exciting opportunity to try out the latest in assistive technology, including adapted toys, 3D printers, robots, and more, and see firsthand how life-changing these devices can be!
The Simon Technology Center’s annual Family Fun Day and Tech Expo is a free community event that will feature fun activities for all ages and abilities. Participants can interact with a variety of devices for children, teens, and adults.
PACER staff and volunteers will provide hands-on activities as well as opportunities to learn about a wide range of assistive technology that can help individuals from birth to adulthood gain independence. There will be mini sessions to see iPad app demonstrations, accessible art and do-it-yourself technology, information about PACER’s resources, and light refreshments.
