Missouri School for the Blind is pleased to offer our first-ever "Tech It Up
a Notch" Technology Day on March 29, 2012.  This event for students who are
blind and visually impaired in grades 6-12 will be held on the MSB campus.
"Tech It Up a Notch" will provide students hands-on access to software and
devices designed or adapted specifically for the blind and visually
impaired.  All activities will be in a staff supported setting.  


The "Tech It Up a Notch" opening session will provide an introduction to a
variety of innovative assistive and adaptive technology devices.  


The following three sessions will consist of two options, designed to
include students of varied ability levels:  


1) Students will be given the opportunity to choose sessions in which they
can explore devices and software in a non-competitive environment, 


2) Students may demonstrate their skills in competitive rounds.  Prizes will
be awarded to Overall Competition Winners in the Middle School 

(6-8) and High School Divisions (9-12).  Prizes include: two iPads, two
LiveScribe Pens, Adaptive ADL equipment, and more!  


In addition, all students attending may enter to win door prizes in a
drawing to be held during the closing assembly.
