You will scan and edit photos (ever want to put your brother’s head on your dog’s body?). You will create super cool PowerPoint presentations and explore the Internet as an educational and fun tool. All Internet surfing will be kid-safe and appropriate. This program will help you gain more confidence in your math and computer abilities, build on your basic skills, and you’ll have great fun, too!
