MIT Technology Day a Big Hit!

MIT Academy’s inaugural "Technology Day" on Saturday October 12th was a big hit, drawing hundreds of community visitors and culminating with an inspiring keynote address from Peralta College Chancellor Calvin Matlock, who conducted a drawing for a new Kindle Fire HDx. The event, free to all participants, was designed in part as a "thank you" to the Vallejo community for their support over the past 14 years, as well as a way to reach out and bolster the technology skills of all Vallejo area residents. The day featured over two dozen workshops on tech topics including Photoshop, robotics, Google Docs, programming, hardware, and many others. MIT Tech Day will heretofore be an annual October event, with plans to significantly expand the program offerings next year.
