Your Vacation Power Point [8+] - Wednesday, May 30th at 5 PM

As we get closer to summer, we are all thinking about the places to go and fun activities to do.

When you get back, you may want to share the wonderful time with your friends and family.

What better way to do it than with a slideshow!

No, not that old, boring presentation by Uncle Ned droning on about the fantastic time he had at the stamp collector’s convention.

We’re talking about a modern Power Point that highlights the best parts of your time.

Learn how to create title slides, insert pictures, use transitions and animations, and add in a voice over to narrate your pictures.

Join us on Wednesday, May 30th at 5 PM in the Computer Lab.
