Free workshops on technology and today’s digital lifestyle are being offered at the eighth annual Geek Day at Leeward Community College, Saturday February 25, 10am�"3 p.m.
The college will present free hands-on workshops and demonstrations on a variety of digital, mobile and technology topics, from digital photography to a variety of free online tools and services that can make life easier! A highlight of the day is a session on “fake news,” a nonpartisan, fact-filled session on how to identify fake news and become a keen evaluator of information.
