Sand pail and shovelPlay in the Technology Sandbox



We’re recreating the fun of your childhood backyard sandbox with the FREE monthly ICS Technology Sandbox.

Learn about new technology and services in an easygoing, encouraging environment with ICS experts ready to answer any questions.  No appointment needed – just drop by for as little or as long as you can, and have a snack and soda, too.

Because people are popping in and out and asking various questions, Sandboxes aren’t archived for future viewing. If you’re interested in the topic but can’t make the event, you’re welcome to schedule a training directly with Learning Designer Nate Jorgensen by clicking here.
