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

What better way to do it than with a slideshow!

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.
