Join BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton on Saturday April 30th, 2016 for the tenth annual “DaVinci’s Faire & BarCamp” – a FREE day of learning, wonder, and amazement! Besides our traditional BarCamp “unConference” experience where YOU are the expert, we will have Makers, Inventors, Robots, Drones, Gamers, a Quick-pitch competition for entrepreneurs, and tons of fun. There’s a Science & Technology mini-festival and a wing of technology tracks including Cybersecurity, Digital Health, and more. We continue to build upon past DaVinci’s Faire & BarCamp events and they get better every year!
So, what is DaVinci’s Faire? Imagine that, besides the traditional BarCamp experience, you would also be able to walk around and explore a Faire containing Makers with their cool gadgets and machines, Inventors showing off their ideas and prototypes, school Robotics teams running their creations in the hallways, Drones flying through the air, and a Gamers area where there will be game design sessions, discussion of advanced gaming concepts, and games being played!
We also have a hall dedicated to a Science and Technology mini-festival where you’ll be able to see the ideas of our scientists and engineers put into practice. This infinite world of IoT, the Internet of Things, will be demonstrated and discussed along with Wearable Technologies and other cutting edge gadgets. During DaVinci’s Faire & BarCamp, entrepreneurs can take advantage of experienced mentors that make themselves available and offer to coach you in delivering a pitch for your great idea, culminating in a quick-pitch competition where we give out small cash prizes to the winners. Very fun and dynamic!
The incredible Manatee Technical College Main Campus, located on State Road 70 near I-75 in Bradenton (Google Map), is again playing host to this year’s DaVinci’s Faire & BarCamp. Bring your family for a terrific weekend in beautiful Bradenton, FL.
