Gateway Technical College’s student chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals will hold it second free PC-based computer clinic 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept.14 in the Michigan Room of the Racine Building on the Racine Campus, 1001 S. Main St.
AITP members will diagnose PC computer problems and fix them to the best of their ability. Those bringing in computers can either watch the entire troubleshooting process with the student, or drop of the computer and pick it up later in the event. While the event is free, donations are appreciated.
Members will also sell used and restored computers at the event.
There is a two computer limit per person, and attendees should not bring the mouse, keyboard or monitor. Computers will be worked on in a first-come, first-served basis. The August event was so well-attended that students had to stop taking computers at about noon to be able to work on them properly before 2 p.m. More students will be on hand at this event to work on the computers, though, say AITP organizers.
The event allows students to give back to the community while honing the skills they will use once they enter their career.
