About Timmy TechnologyTimmy Technology is SET-BC’s official ambassador. He is available to visit BC schools and communities. Any teacher or special education assistant can invite Timmy to visit a SET-BC student in any school in British Columbia.
Timmy travels with a video/still camera, accessible books, switch activated toys and ideas for fun activities and resources. He will travel by courier to your classroom.
Timmy is a soft, cuddly stuffed mascot that is intended to give SET-BC students a friend to introduce to their school, friends, family and community.
He would love for your student to show him the sights and take pictures of him visiting their favourite places. At school students can write stories and draw pictures about their time together.
The idea for Timmy Technology came about when SET-BC student, Rebecca, entered a Virtual Voices Village mascot design contest and submitted the winning design.
Timmy moved from design to reality through the deft hands of SET-BC consultants.
